We always tend to get a bit nostalgic during the holidays. We look back at Christmases past and think of loved ones that are no longer with us on the holidays.

As a kid, things were much simpler around Christmas. No shopping malls, no electronic games, iPads, iPhones or any of those other overly expensive gift ideas. I think the most expensive gift I ever got as a kid was a new bike, which, at the time, was probably $60.
