What’s under the tree? Students share their Christmas wishlist


Christmas is right around the corner, and we all know what that means. It’s time to get together with family and close friends. It’s time to sit around the fireplace with your family singing holiday songs and drinking eggnog. It’s about going outside in the cold, caroling with other families to people who need the Christmas spirit. It’s a time to celebrate and give. Christmas is about being kind to strangers. It’s about donating money to the old man who stands outside in the below freezing weather, wearing a Santa hat, ringing the Salvation Army bell for hours at a time. It is also the time for presents. Howell High School students have quite the interesting Christmas list.


“What I want for Christmas are Pistachio Nuts because I really like the taste of Pistachios. They’re one of my favorite snacks, they’re fun to eat, and it’s just a good time when you’re eating them. They make a really good stocking stuffer. So if you guys want to stuff my stocking with Pistachios let me know,” senior Noah Buczek says.

“I would like a GoPro. I have some pretty cool things to record in my life, I love to go hiking. I love to go hiking at the Pinckney Recreation Park. I’m an outdoors person and there’s a lot of things I could record that could be really cool. I’ve been on lots of adventures like Romania,” senior Kaitlyn Bloom says.

“I want a grading stone for my cut throat razor, it’s not sharp, and I don’t want to cut my neck open. So I need to get a grading stone so it doesn’t do that. It would be a perfect gift for me but they’re very hard to find, and very expensive,” junior Ryan Dymkowski says.

“What I want for Christmas Is for people to actually embody peace, without simultaneously preparing war. To quote Twain, ‘Man is the only animal that robs his helpless fellow of his country, takes possession of it, and drives him out of it or destroys him. Man has done this in all the ages. There is not an acre of ground on the globe that is in possession of it’s rightful owner, or that has not been taken away from owner after owner, cycle after cycle, by force and bloodshed.’ He goes on to say that all man does is just commit the atrocity, wipe his hands clean, and does it again. And I’m honestly just really sick of people saying ‘I want world peace’ and then they don’t advocate for it, they don’t live their lives for it, they just merely, feebly express their dreams, their wants, and their desires when they need to actually do something about it,” senior Brendan Norwood says.

“I want clothes, Alex Doyle, and [a] PS4,” senior Bailey Harrington says.

“For Christmas I’m thinking a quick $100 or $200 would be pretty good because I’m saving up for a car, and any money I earned that I don’t have to work for is going to be less hours that I have to work for my car. So in the end it’s going to be a good long term idea,” senior Ricky Quirez says.

“I want to know what I want. I don’t know what I want for Christmas,” senior Alex Doyle says.
