11 Things You Miss Most About Being a Kid - 11 Points Countdown
written by Sam Greenspan

We've got a new episode of 11 Points Countdown for you today -- the 11 things you miss most about being a kid.

I thought it would be interesting to debate the results with a co-host from an entirely different generation, and we got a good one. I'm joined by YouTube sensation Amanda McKenna of Amanda's Chronicles -- and she's right around half my age which brings in a perfect other perspective.

Here are the full results of the poll (highlight the first 11 to avoid spoilers)...
  1. Vacations (winter, summer, spring, etc.)
  2. The excitement of Christmas morning
  3. Recess in the middle of the day
