You might think you are going to see a list of ten things teens don’t want for Christmas, but instead, I have something different. If I were to put down random things that I, myself, don’t want for Christmas, I would be saying that everyone in the world is the same. That’s wrong. We are all different and don’t like many of the same things as others. If you think about it, you will notice that some teens like things that you don’t. For instance, if you wanted a big, stuffed pink elephant for Christmas and that was one of things I didn’t want for Christmas, then that would show you that we were different.

When buying something for a friend, it’s all about what that certain person wants, instead of selfishly thinking about what you want. If you want that gift to be special, take the “me” out of it and think about what they like, don’t like, and want. If they don’t like what is in style, get them the things that they like that aren’t in style. It’s better to think of them than think of yourself because if you give them a gift that you would like and they don’t like, you put yourself in a bad position, my friend. However, if you think about them, you’ve got yourself a thankful and happy friend that will stick with you for a long time. Make this a Christmas that you’ll want to remember forever, and get your friend something that they want and will cherish.

Merry Christmas, everyone.
