Not The Right Gift?

The whole month of December you were hoping to get an Xbox for Christmas. When you woke up in the morning you got many great presents including toys that you know you will enjoy. However, you did not get the Xbox. What do you think is the best way to act? Is it ungrateful to look down on what you did get when you did not get one thing you wanted? Why?

Later that day you found out one of your friends down the road got an Xbox and some great games. What do you think would be the best way to act? How would you want your friend to act if you got the Xbox and he did not?
