“So, I got this guy when I was 19. Freshly out of the house and loving life. My grandparents and my father went behind my back and paid it off for Christmas that year. Best Christmas ever…. 3 years later I got really hard up for money and sold it to a pawn shop. Being my first electric, it really hurt to let it go. The pawn shop owner knew my Dad and she called him to let him know what I had done. My Dad went to said Pawn Shop, bought it back, and then re-gifted it to me 2 years later. Complete shock both times to open it on Christmas.” – Aja
T’is the month before Christmas,
and all throughout Cape,
We’re collecting presents to make everyone’s Christmas great.
At E74, we’re gearing up to give. Happy’s Toy Bash is coming up, and we’re starting to collect toys in our office. Which got us to thinking, what were some of our favorite Christmas gifts growing up?
A trip down memory lane . . .
“I got one of my best friends a couple years ago. Her name is Brandy. We celebrate her birthday on Christmas.” – William
“My favorite Christmas present was my first real mountain bike. I remember getting it and taking it outside for a test drive but I wasn’t quite big enough to reach the pedals and it was really cold outside…obviously. My dad assured me that, by Spring, I’d be tall enough to ride it. He was right. As soon as Spring rolled around I took to the woods!” – Austin
