9. Depressing, perhaps, but we don’t always get what we want for Christmas. Write about the present you’re still waiting for.
I can honestly say that when I consider this proposal, not much springs to mind. It’s not that I always got everything I wanted or anything like that, but I was always quite happy with what I got for Christmas, and as such I can’t really recall many specific things that I wanted and never got.
But if I had to pick one thing, I guess I’d go with a pet. Obviously these days I understand the (many) reasons why I couldn’t have one, but I spent a good bit of my childhood wishing for a kitten or a puppy, and I can recall several Christmases during which I was secretly hoping that one might be rolling around under the tree when I got up in the morning.
That’s all I can really say about this one. 😛
