    Visual evidence that Christmas has been ruined by greed....

    http://shine.yahoo.com/holiday-gift...orable-christmas-requests-kids-192200129.html


    Christmas has become a marketing/money monster.

    our grandparents or great-grandparents were super pleased to have a new school bag and a handful of candy.. kids today will rip your head off if they don't get the new TurboMan doll, or whatever is popular this year.

    Greed is prevalent in adults to toddlers.. and IMO, it's poisoned our whole outlook on life.

    Let me ask you this, were you upset by the firing of Chris Palmer?

    Airplane bottles?

    Are these spirits for ants?

    I played Santa today for some third graders. Here's what they wanted...

    iPad Mini (three wanted this)
    Unicorn (I asked "A stuffed animal?". She said "Nope. Real.")
    Mustang GT (real one)
    Motorcycle (real one)
    iPod Touch
    Toy Poodle (real one)
    Chihuahua (real one)
    Ray Rice Ravens Jersey
    LEGO Star Wars Death Star Kit ($400 set at Walmart because I was curious and looked)
    An SUV for her mom (needs sun roof, DVD player — luxery package)
    $50

    Some normal things were asked for like doll houses and video games.

    I did have one request for a toilet which was a first. This kid told me he is tired of hearing it run all the time.

    I'm assuming most knew I was fake so was having fun with it. But all one girl wanted was lip gloss. I asked her which flavor and she didn't have a preference.
