My mom has asked me several times to put together a Christmas list for this year, and I am still lagging behind. Most of this is because I am trying to be very strict with my money so I can pay off my car, so I have been putting on blinders to things that I want, which makes it difficult for others to know what to give.
Also, what I really want is a dinosaur for Christmas. Not a stuffed animal, or glow-in-the-dark toys – both of which I already have, but a real live dinosaur straight from Jurassic Park and transported to our backyard.
And why would I want a dinosaur? First, why not? It’s a dinosaur, and dinosaurs are awesome.
But, in case you need some persuasion, here are five reasons to ask for a dinosaur for Christmas:
1. When you watch a dinosaur movie, your pet dinosaur can explain to you what really happened.
Sharptooth has a bad rap. He’s actually a nice fellow, if you happen to also be a T-Rex, and not his dinner.
2. When you are putting up or taking down your holiday lights, you can use your dinosaur like a ladder.
3. A dinosaur can double as a snow-plow.
Or a jungle gym
4. You could start “Ride Your Dinosaur To Work Day”
While most of us drive dino-powered vehicles, you could have the only dinosaur-powered vehicle with renewable energy! (Just feed them more leaves, or a cow, depending on what the dino likes to eat.)
5. Dinosaurs are magical!
And one of the first animated films ever made was about a dinosaur named Gertie.
How about you? Have you made a Christmas list (or any holiday of your choice)? Do you have a top-secret gift you are excited about giving? If you could have anything, fictional or not, what would it be?

Definitely a fan of Gertie’s. Did I mention our pet pterodactyl? Biggest problem is catching the stray cats to feed it.
I’m glad you can put stray cats to good use.
I love The Land Before Time!!!!! If I could have a fictional gift it would definitely be a toss-up between Hermoine’s magic bag (that you can put anything and everything in and it stays small) or the time-turner. But the time-turner might cause all kinds of trouble so maybe the bag is a safer request.
I’d like the bag too – especially if it came with one of those tents with everything in it.
Exactly! Adding the ability to self-camoflague, I’d never need to pay for a hotel again!
You might be to young to remember that you can also walk your dinosaur! – http://youtu.be/zYKupOsaJmk
I’m not familiar with this, but it does seem amazing!
If I could have a mythical gift, I think it would be a dragon! Which is probably just another form of dinosaur.
Most dinosaurs don’t breath flame, and only a few dinosaurs fly. A dragon would be a very handy pet indeed.
I once dreamed of having an Ultrasauros in our backyard. It certainly felt intense. For its shear size, it towered over our house and I couldn’t see it’s head. True story. Now if you ask me what a dinosaur was doing in our backyard, I have to say–I have no clue. But it was fun seeing it there in all its glory, for sure!
Gertie!!! I am on the same boat with Jeff on this one – definitely want a dragon! Wing, scales and breathing fire – that’s my kind of pet 🙂 Although I feel little bad writing this as my eight year old kitten is purring next to me…but I bet she would like to BE a dragon if she could!
Well, didn’t get one this Christmas but I am happy to wait for my birthday….it’s in August…so plenty of time…just saying.
My sister Kayla got me a toy dinosaur for Christmas, which will at least tide me over for a little while.
Maybe, your cat secretly turns into a dragon at night, which would explain a lot of sleeping during the day.
