    Christmas is not an a North American holiday, Anubis. Our Australian brothers are celebrating as we type. Our Middle Eastern brothers are getting shafted once again this year with no gifts.

    A melted catalytic converter and the worst vacation that I could have ever been on.

    Cost (to me!)? >$1000.

    Several checks from the VA. About 1200 dollars or so.
    Which of course came well after the bank closed. And I bet Wed. the bank is gonna be crazy.

    Also, a gift for myself from Amazon: PGA Tour 2003. Turns out thats no the one I want. I should have bought 2002 instead.

    My wife and our new baby were able to come home from the hospital at 8 tonight. They are now both sleeping on the couch next to me, and I'm watching the end of It's a Wonderful Life.

    That's all I got.

    Best Christmas ever.

    Got this from the wife. Told her I didn't want anything. Relieved it wasn't that expensive. Usually I tell her exactly what I want, but everything I want has yet to be released, or even officially announced. (Tablet, GPU, Smartphone)

    This is why smartphone apps that let you scan in checks are awesome!

    Probably a wallet and some books, dunno yet. Did get one $50 check already.

    I haven't gotten anything yet... well, I did get a new set of pots and pans a couple weeks ago.

    Gifts for my two sons: Savage Axis 30.06 with scope (hunting rifle), new couch for the new house, new recliner for the apartment, season ski pass, some clothing, clothing for their girlfriend/fiancee, plus a few minor items.

    Spending it with my 2 daughters, they are now asleep finally, waiting for Santa, who showed up, ate the brownie and drank the glass of milk they left for him. Best Christmas I've had in a long time.

    I didn't get anything and I am giving my mother $800 which dashed my plan for building a server and picking up a WiiU. I could always do this at the end of January... :(

    Oh, I forgot...my mom bought me a pair of Pajama pants on sale at Walmart...
