Around North Atlanta, late-December means the end of the semester, the end of the calendar year — goodbye 2018! — and the time when we all think about giving and receiving that perfect holiday gift. We asked our always-amazing readers what they truly — truly — wanted for the season and their answers were poignant, touching, heart-rending and very funny.

Dear, readers: You are the true gift to us. You continue to inspire us! (And you give us plenty to write about.) Hey Dubs: What do you want for Christmas?

A new personality … a boyfriend … a father … a gas leaf blower … a Chevy Tahoe … nothing … a mom … a new phone … really, nothing … shoes … I would like to get an extra chromosome for my friend … my parents to get a divorce … a non-broken collar bone … two front teeth … snow … for my dad to come back from the store … a family … this bread … I wish that I had Jessie’s girl … a car with less than 230K miles on it … mental stability … therapy … JUUL pods … money … another dog … Airpods: That way you won’t have to go through the struggle with the cord .. shoes.
