Honey Boo Boo and Mama June return to TLC in January for their holiday special episodes — and are revealing the best and worst gifts they’ve ever gotten for Christmas! Watch the hilarious video.

AlanaHoney Boo BooThompson may be one of Barbara Walters‘ 10 Most Fascinating People of 2012, but at home in Georgia she’s just a regular kid — and can’t stop talking about Christmas this time of year! Honey Boo Boo and her Mama June Shannon reflected on Christmases past, including the best and worst gifts they’ve ever gotten.

“The worst Christmas gift I ever got was my Barbie car that I had to take back because it was too small,” Alana said. But even if the Barbia car didn’t work out, another piece of furntier for her room made it all worth it.

“My best Christmas present was my tent that goes over my bed,” she revealed. Mama June confessed that her favorite Christmas present was something that benefitted the whole family.

“The best Christmas gift I got was a year ago when I got my crock pot, ’cause we were able to put meals in there and then just forgot about it, come back like eight hours later and it would be ready,” she said.

Although Mama June can’t recall her worst gift exactly, she knows she has had some lumps of coal as gifts before — and she wasn’t happy about it. She said it was “maybe like a $5 gift card to like Walmart gift card or something.”

“What are you gonna buy nowadays with a $5 gift card? I mean come on now,” she added.

Mama June is convinced she will be on Santa’s nice list this year — especially since Sugar Bear plays Santa in their hometown!

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo returns to TLC on Jan. 6 for their new holiday special episodes: Jan. 6 airs the Halloween special, the Thanksgiving special is on Jan. 13 and the Christmas special is on Feb. 17.
