    I know some people exchange gifts on Christmas Eve instead of Christmas day, so let me start.

    I bought myself a new Laptop (Asus Zenbook UX31A touch) and a new camera (Nikon D3200). My relatives gave me a headache and a case of indigestion ... same thing they got me last year. ;)

    I got my best gift last week. The kid came home. Nothing beats that. Nothing.
    We have a family wedding right after Christmas so it's a tiny one this year. I am not giving or receiving much, and that's just fine with me.

    Or the day after Christmas, as in my case this year! Our daughter and son-in-law, and our two beautiful grandsons, are arriving Thursday. I can't wait! :D

    Good for you. Nice choices.

    It would be "spit out my coffee" time, but I'm not drinking coffee right now. :rofl:

    I leave it up to the wife to go crazy each year. She never dissapoints. I took care of myself a few days back and ordered a knife I've had my eye on for some time. I stocked up on some refreshing beverages for the holiday. Have a house full of yummy stuff ready to cook. Kids are coming over tomorrow.. what more could a man want?

    I didn't participate in Christmas this year. I gave nothing and I got nothing so it ended up working out.

    My sweetie let me open 1 present tonight before I went to work. I got some beautiful flannel pajamas in a blue plaid print with a solid blue long sleeve shirt. It's kind of traditional actually, everyone gets new PJs for Christmas in my household.

    Santa said I had been a very extremely nasty super troglodyte... stealing candy from babies... beating up old grannies... and robbing liquor stores... so I got this for Christmas ek se :(


    He said if I don't stop ringing disabled people's door bells and running for the hills then he will come and get me himself he said ek het gese dis baie mal... dis baie mal ek se... :)

    He sent a letter and it was very rude and he told me to get a life... :(

    Oh well I guess I should start being a good little gnome? :(

    The mostest worstest part of all of your bad behavior is that you did not share your ill-gotten gains with your friends here on AF. BAD, NAUGHTY, BAD Stinky!

    Santa gave you a "make your own diamond" kit!

    Now all you need to do is get that gold away from the hobbits.

    Shame on you, Mr Stinkster-Christmas-Grinch-Living-In-A-Dumpster-With-Giant-Ugly-Disgusting-Cockroaches. :mad: Coal looks like an appropriate gift for you this year, young man.

    Now shape the hell up so Santa brings you something better next year!

    I got both the kids Nexus 7's this year.

    Probably the biggest hit was the fact they can now play Minecraft together on said tablets. ;)

    I didn't get much myself, I bought myself a copy of Arkham Origins so I had something for under the tree. I asked for money from everyone else to put towards a PS4 at some point early next year.

    The cash thing didn't go to plan though, I bought myself a chromecast earlier in the month and I'm toying between getting a chromebook or a 2nd hand netbook. It's looking like the latter as I've just added a tonne to my ebay watch list. For all I'd use it for, I can't justify

    At least you got that. I'm working so :( but at least the pay is nice. I got a 32" flat screen.
  22. LOL same here. I can't watch Minecraft in split screen on our TV so I never played MC with my kids on the xBox. Fat man brought them tablets this year too, so we spent most of the day linked up on the tablets :) My vision is still blurred from that!!

    My brother in law gave me around 200 shot gun shells. I was a very happy individual as I was down to my last box. :)

    Other than that I got a bunch of very excited smiles from the little ones. Yeah, that made my chest hurt. :)

    Best present ever. ;)
