We can all use a little extra cash around the holidays, but Twitter user @a_johnson412 is going to need a lottery win to make his daughter’s Christmas list a reality. Johnson posted a picture of his young one’s handwritten list to his Twitter feed with the proclamation, “ My 10-year-old daughter must be out of her mind with this Christmas list.” The tweet has been shared more than 26,000 times and liked by over 133,000 users. Commenter @wtfitsvee helpfully replied, “I’ve started a pricing sheet for you,” with a spreadsheet outlining an estimated running tab of $12,776.89. “Tell her she needs to be more specific with some items.” Another estimate from @_jackiega_ put the tally at over $15,000.
Make A List, Check It Twice, But What Do You Buy?
Most replies are outright laughter at the requests of an iPhone 11, Gucci slides, a Chanel purse, and “asenschal (essential) oil.” User @KaviarSundays remarked, “I love how every couple of things on the list reminds you she’s still very much a kid lol.” Another, @oneevpro, warned Johnson, “U have over a month to get every d*** thing on this list. Nursing homes can get lonely.” The 10-year-old’s 26-item directive runs the gamut from cuddly (a real bunny) to practical ($4,000 cash). Even Dick’s Sporting Goods offered to help cross one item off, commenting, “We’re fresh out of real bunnies… but we may be able to help with that hydro flask. Shoot us a DM. :)” Lookfantastic.com offered up hair and skincare products.
Users couldn’t resist giving Johnson an out, telling him to only buy items that are spelled correctly. Since his daughter is a (very good) phonetic speller, this tactic would eliminate most of the pricier items–apart from the cash. Though most replies commented on the Christmas list itself, other users took the opportunity to reminisce about their own fantasy lists as children. User @auroragoryalice notes, ”same energy as me flipping through the toys r us catalog circling all the expensive s***.” @Sarahh_Liz noted, “A Chanel bag girl I’m still waiting for mine and I’m 23,” prompting @lisasp to reply, “Get in line I am 50 and still waiting…”
Spreading Holiday Cheer
The holidays are a great time to share memories online, turning up common regional and generational threads. Also in 2019, Maya Kosoff (@mekosoff) tipped off a thread with her request for people to share their family’s most enduring Thanksgiving side dish. With over 1,000 retweets and more than 11,000 likes, one theme emerged: gross jello salads. Kosoff’s own share was “a wild creation called seafoam salad. “i [sic] thought this was a normal thing every family made and served for thanksgiving next to the turkey and the stuffing until i was 18,” she said. The accompanying photos feature a lime-green star-shaped jello mold next to a well-worn recipe card. Other jello salads are comprised of some combination of fruit, dairy, jello, and nuts, though some were savory and others a disgusting mix of sweet and savory. User @jsthomas1977 noted, “I can totally handle the sweet jello concoctions. This sounds tasty! Its the savory jello molds with hotdog chunks and olives that I… just… can’t.”
In 2017, Haley Webster (@bookshaped) from the U.K. created a bona fide Twitter moment when she shared a story about the best Christmas gift she’d ever received. The story, about how a neighbor changed her view of gift-giving by remembering her with an inexpensive piece of sheet music, which was liked and shared more than 5,000 times, is still bookmarked today as a holiday favorite and won the approval of J.K. Rowling herself. As for @a_johnson412 and the gift-giving at his house, we may never know. User @beckyscan speaks for us all when she pleads, “Please update us on how Christmas morning goes!”
