It's almost a week late, but here is my 6th Annual "100 Item Christmas List." For those who are new to this tradition, here are the ground rules:

*) Items are randomized prior to publication, so the order in which something appears on the list is no indication of preference.

*) Many items are unusual, nonsensical, or even impossible. I would be happy with any item on the list, even if it fits one or more of the above.

*) No explanations will be given until January 1, 2017. Even then, explanations will only be given if asked for.

*) Some of you who have seen previous lists may notice duplicates, running gags, or other such tomfoolery. This is not a cause for concern.

Resetting the link to the rules for the format I created 20 years ago on the top of my blog about it,.

I know some of you have been waiting for this, and it's only a day later than scheduled, but here is my 100 Item Christmas List for 2015. As there are new people each year, let me go over the ground rules:

1) I am well aware that some of the items on this list are impractical, unattainable, or even downright impossible. However, receiving anything on this list would be appreciated, no matter how "small" it may seem.

2) As the list for this year is now published, questions about anything on the list, or on any previous year's list, are now closed and will go unanswered until they reopen. They will reopen on January 1, 2016.

3) The contents of the list are randomized prior to publication, so the
order in which they appear is NOT the order in which I would like them. This is to encourage people to read the whole list.
