A Jimmy Kimmel Christmas

December 16, 2011

So, Jimmy Kimmel asked parents to give their children a TERRIBLE present EARLY, record the reaction and send it to him.

Have you seen the movie he put together of the kids' reactions?
Here's the movie and below is a link to it on YouTube.

Sure, it's comical. I'm sure if you're an adult, you laughed.

But take a moment to think about the seriousness... these kids expected a nice, thoughtful gift from their parents. They were excited to be ALLOWED to open a Christmas present early, and they were shocked when they received something less than... thoughtful.

One mom said, "we thought real hard about what to give you this year." Her son's comment, "well you didn't try very hard."

Remember this Christmas season to really think about what you want to give your loved ones... and it's not always about the money.

Some budgets are tight this year. Check these links for a few, not so cheesy, home-made ideas:

And of course there's always Martha: DIY if you're Martha

And lastly, if Martha doesn't do it, Pinterest inspires.

Hope your loved one doesn't have a Jimmy Kimmel Christmas!
