Memory Day: Christmas Twenty Years Ago

On Christmas in 1992, I was 13 years old. My stash consisted of the following goodies:

  • The boardgame, Hero Quest, and an expansion pack
  • The Super NES games, Battle Clash and Super Mario Kart
  • A Super NES Game Genie
  • The Game Boy game, Super Mario Land 2
  • The computer game, Gobliiins
  • A microscope, and many assorted microscope accessories
  • A pack of Bubble Yum grape gum
  • CDs by John Barry and Ray Stevens
  • A Foxtail, which we never actually played with
  • The books, How To Play With Your Food by Penn and Teller, and Mostly Harmless by Douglas Adams
  • Two books on programming in Visual Basic
  • The 1993 World Almanac

I still own all of these items except for the almanac and Visual Basic books!

After opening all of the presents, our yearly tradition involved a narrated inventory of the presents. When we were young, this was a detailed deep dive. As we got older it became, "Look, here are some books and games and stuff, now let me play."
