What did you get for (Insert holiday here)?

It will always live on in our hearts. And other vital organs contained within our eventually-dead bodies.

Maybe Santa Claus brought you something, or maybe you did weird naked Wiccan things and exchanged carrots. Perhaps you just decided to give L. Ron Hubbard all of your money. Regardless, most of you probably received something from your family and/or friends this holiday season.<P>This thread is for bragging about your gifts, and other various witty banter which you may engage in at your own discretion.<P>'Tis the season to get free shit!<P>So far I've received a shotglass, money, and some cool t-shirts.<P>If my girlfriend's family gets me socks again I'm going to roll around in the floor and cry. They weren't even good socks. THOSE BARBARIANS!!!

This year I was far more happy with what I *gave* than got. I gave my sister a printer, my brother a CD burner, and my mom a check for her Xmas expenses.<P>Giving RULES.

Next thing you're gonna tell me is that some Biblical scholars say that the birth of Jesus actually took place closer to June or July than December, but that the Christians thought Wiccan Yule kicked so much ass that they'd take it for themselves, sorta like they did with Easter...<P>------------------

I was only making an attempt at being humorous, which obviously failed.<P>I probably gave away more for "Christmas" than I got, and as for the "christian" remarks, I am totally aware of all those facts, and I am an atheist.
