It was meant for when we were children which of course you knew but then again maybe you were eight to answer as you did

Not sure I can think of much for myself - but probably one of the best Christmas's was after my kids knew there was no Santa.

Oldest of the young sparks always used to go hunting for the presents, and this particular year - he found every present destined for his brother and sister and none of his own.

Christmas morning came, and as soon as he was up I revealed the hiding place of all his. He had a cabin bed - and he'd been sleeping on top of them all.

Thanks all

I have to say, my young man was less than impressed - but the rest of us thought it was a great start to the day
