For the family though it has to be monopoly, I e heard it's banned from the royal house hold due to it's notoriety for starting fights

Crossfire!

Operation and monopoly.

We only had a 16K, so it was Jetpac and Jumping Jack for us!

Christmas isn't a retail festival

remember my cousin having a big trak, buckaroo and mousetrap,
I was jealous.

I built a spectrum, then had an Acorn Atom with a massive 1mb, then an Atari ST, then eventually a real PC, a 286 with something like 256Kb of RAM and a 40 Mb hard disk. I remember that RAM in those days being £50 per Mb!!!!
Joy, I knew nothing, didn't learn programming, was a 'user', but, ended up as a mainframe engineer for a company called Amdahl and installing, maintaining the biggest(physically) and most powerful computers on the planet at that time.
I miss that job..........

I empathise with your statement but unfortunately it is these days. How many people who 'celebrate' Christmas are practicing Christians?

I remember my parents bought me a telescope for my birthday and I made them take it back and I bought this instead. I'll never forget the look of disappointment in their eyes.
