In the early '80s, moms were duking it out in the aisles, smashing one another with carts to get the Cabbage Patch dolls as they were unloaded. In recent years fights have broken out over Xboxes, Elmo dolls and other hot items of the season in recent years.
We needn't get that violent over securing our kids that "special toy," but we'd love to know: what are they asking for this year?
Please do take our poll. While the selections are broadly-based, we hope you'll add your commentary below to tell us about specific items your kids are asking for from Santa, and you.
Many of these items can be found around Marlborough, especially inside the many retail shops at the Solomon Pond Mall.
