    So what did everyone get? And yes I know it is the 24th still in the States but other places celebrate it as well

    What I got:
    -Wii + Super Mario Galaxy
    -$150 + $100 (from grandma) = $250
    -2 books + 1 book (a white elephant type gift exchange) = 3 books
    -iTunes Gift Cards
    -iPhone
    -A few new shirts
    -A new pair of jeans
    -$35 gift card to a local mall (a white elephant type gift exchange)
    -"So You Think You Are Smarter Than A 5th Grader" board game (a white elephant type gift exchange)

    (We celebrated early as we will not be home on the 25th)

    I got my presents from my parents stuck in Los Angeles thanks to DHL and US Customs. So sweet of them.

    In return the Christmas tree ornament we sent will arrive Christmas thanks to the US & Australia post.

    Great year for the mail :).

    Otherwise the gf and i went 50/50 on an HD DVD player for ourselves. Will find out more tomorrow when it is actually Christmas :)

    So far I have gotten a couple DVDs, cash, and some clothes.
    In the morning is when I get to the real deal...

    My iPhone is currently waiting for me under the tree =)

    My mom also bought a Wii as a family gift so that should be fun as well, but the iPhone is what I'm really waiting for

    Why did you get an ACD? New ones should be coming 'round the corner any time now. But what the heck. Enjoy:D

    We opened our gifts tonight (Xmas Eve) and I received the following:

    - Doctor Who TARDIS 4-port USB Hub
    - Family Guy Volume 5 DVD
    - Robot Chicken Season 2 DVD
    - The Art of War book
    - The 4-Hour Work Week book
    - renewal of my Macworld subscription
    - a very cool bottle of Grenadine
    - chocolates!

    Pam and I also received some excellent gifts including a very contemporary sushi set...

    It's been an excellent Christmas so far, but not because of the gifts - more so because of the quality family time I've been able to spend with everyone. :)

    Happy holidays to everyone! :cool:

    As per family tradition my uncle comes over on the evening of the 24th and we exchange / open gifts. He gave me a Memorex iPod stereo and a T-Shirt that says "Only a REAL loser would stand there and take the time to read the message on somebody else's STUPID T-shirt". Heh :p

    The rest of my gifts (the ones my family exchanges with each other) are unknown. We'll be opening them tomorrow AM. I suspect that I'll be getting the Simpson's movie, a computer desk, and the ever popular but sensible gift of some clothing.

    A car ! :eek::D:)

    Never did I imagine a car as a gift!

    Completely far out- I'm in shock! A brand new car as a gift?!? that's warped, but I am the happy recipient of a beautiful new vehicle, with better gas mileage and no more weekends spent fixing the car! Very exciting, but also happy to give gifts to three great kids, a couple of adults, and some other folk. 'Tis better to give than to receive,,, but both are pretty cool this year. :)
