I know a gift I would like to request this year...a day to myself.
You see, my birthday falls smack in the middle of Chanukah. When it isn't right in the thick of the holiday, it's perilously close. Growing up with a birthday this time of year pretty much sucked. I got one gift for two occasions. I always felt cheated from my fair share of the loot. All my friends got gifts twice a year, while poor little me only got gifts once.
