A walking stick.
He made that request at about 6pm on Christmas Eve, saying that he'd changed his mind about everything else he'd asked for and that was now what he wanted.
My Mom had just got out of hospital after a hip replacement and he'd been watching her walk around with a stick that afternoon.

DS (5) wrote on his list "red sizers" (scissors)

We have slightly confusedly bought them. A little gentle probing has revealed that he just wants more scissors for at home. At school there are red scissors for right-handers and green-and-yellow scissors for left-handers, and obviously there was a risk we might have bought him left-handed scissors without guidance.

His list also contains:

To Go Bowling

DS1 (aged 5): "dimands and sapires and perls and tresur." (I kept his letter to Santa because it makes me laugh)

This was a few years ago - DS1 is now 15 and wants Superdry stuff and iTunes vouchers...

Peppa Pig raisins...

DS this year - a Ukulele and a Bonsai Tree (he's 21).

MrsH - that is so sweet
KJoff A pet crab - where on earth would you buy that? How funny!

In previous years when they were younger, DC did write their letters saying to Father Christmas that they didn't want any presents at all, and that he should take anything intended for them to other, less fortunate children instead. I think this was off the back of the Samaritan's Purse Shoebox appeal which was promoted by their school, which, whilst I now don't agree with, clearly got them to think about things.

DS asked for a 3 piece suit when he was about 5.
DD (at various ages) asked for her ears to be pissed, nice ham and a glockenspiel...

A cactus.

Eldest son wants CCTV installed in his bedroom.

Middle son wants 'a bus full of books'. He basically wants me to steal the local council's library bus.

Madison - oh, that is so lovely. Children are so incredibly sweet and funny, aren't they? And surprisingly thoughtful.

Absolutely not grin

DS has a top hat and cloak on his list this year fgrin

When dd was 3 she asked for squeaky pasta for Christmas. I had no idea what she meant and she refused to explain further.
About 6 months later she was eating pasta for lunch and she started screaming , make the pasta stop, it is just too sqeaky and loud.
So I guess she got her Christmas wish after all

TeaBelle Wed 07-Dec-16 13:18:49

My cousin asked for a wee Willie winkie hat

A rainbow crap can be purchased from any good aquatic/reptile shop.

Very low maintenance pets.

FairNotFair Wed 07-Dec-16 13:32:23

A rainbow crap, King? I've never fancied one of those... grin

Twinkletowedelephant Wed 07-Dec-16 13:32:41

Ds wants a plunger.....not just any plunger but the one in the shop he saw when were on holiday 250 miles away from home...

That is proving interesting ....
