Word on the Street: What's the best you gave and the best you received this past Christmas?

"The best gift I gave this year was giving myself and my time to others. The best gift I got was spending time with my friends and family."

Terry Hanson, John Day

The best gift Lindsey Webb, 9, gave was, "A cup, I painted it and then put chocolate and candy in it for my poppy. The family got a DVD player from poppy." Sheri gave her husband Mark horsehoeing lessons; he told her she could get some plants and gardening supplies.

"All of the presents to the kids were the best gifts given, and the best I got was watching their eyes light up when they opened their presents."

Delbert Newman, John Day

Doug Reed with his son, Adrian Reed, 17. Doug's favorite gift given was a shirt he picked out for his wife. His favorite gift he got from his 12-year-old son, Brett. "He overheard me saying I wanted a set of phillips head screwdrivers, when I opened his gift, there was one screwdriver."

Doug Reed, John Day
