All I Want is a Dinosaur for Christmas

Every year there is a new "must have" Christmas toy that kids can't do without, but dinosaurs never go out of style.  I am not just talking about the latest roaring, stomping, glow-in-the-dark action figure that will drive parents nuts, but a real dinosaur. I wanted one as a kid (ok, ok, I still would love a dinosaur for Christmas) and plenty of children still ask for them every year. From a list of letters to Santa printed in the Sand Mountain Reporter:

Dear Santa, I have been good this year. All I want for Christmas is a big dinosaur. I will leave you cookies and milk. Love, Ethan Barry

But whether there is a Microraptor, Stegosaurus, or some other dinosaur under the tree this year, we here at Dinosaur Tracking wish you and yours a warm, safe, and happy holiday. Merry Christmas!

We'll return on Monday, December 28.
