A Wii for Christmas

It’s funny, my first reaction to this video was to turn down the volume (man these kids have a set of pipes!) and then to laugh at the sheer joy of it. I remember when Christmas felt like that! I don’t know if I got THAT excited over my first Cabbage Patch Doll, the must-have toy when I was of an age to believe in Santa, but probably pretty close.

My second thought was.. what is it about the Wii that makes them scream, cry, faint, and roll around – literally – in ecstatic joy? Is it just the Must Have gift of the year? Is it the technology? Is it how much fun it is to play with others?

Not sure, but talk about extreme emotion!
