My sister wrapped up pieces of charcoal for her kids one year and put them under the tree with the rest of their presents. When the kids opened the coal, she told them that each piece of coal would have been another present if they had behaved better the year before.
One year when we were all teens my mother got us up at 3AM to open presents as payback for years of 5 and 6AM rises on Christmas morning. . . . we we're all dead tired and yawning . . . we all went right back to bed as soon as we opened everything and hardly looked at any of the stuff we opened. It was all clothes anyhow . . . .
Whatever the reason..that was an incredibly cruel thing to do.I hope those parents dont plan on the kid looking after them later...trust me, he will remember.
The only lesson they taught him was that they don't love him...no parent who loves their child does this. Sadistic and sick.
Why when i watch this vid I have a vivid picture of buckwheat in my head? :D
If you really want to give a kid a lame gift, give a donation to some organization in their name and tell them that is what their gift is.
