What have you got for Christmas this year?
« on: December 25, 2012, 08:30:56 AM »
I got.....

Having desecrated my stocking, I found in it from Father Christmas (really me)

Two tangerines
£6:30p (about $12:60c in US terms)
A paddleball bat and ball
A mini chess set
A mouth organ
Some fake penalty tickets to put on random cars at stupid'o'clock in the morning when noone is awake to see me do it
A laser pen
A bookmark
A "T" seal and sealing wax
Two packs of Vienesse truffles
Three packs of chocolate coins
A compass
Three mini chocolate logs with marzipan robins
Three chocolate puddings
A small slab of chocolate.

From my family under the tree I got...

I got...

A red gala silk shirt that makes me look like Father Christmas.
Big black boots that also look like Father Christmas's.
A big back Father Christmas like belt embossed with red stars.
A dark blue denim shirt.
A map where you hang it on the wall and scrape off a gold foil covering of the countries that you have been to.
A regifted book to write in.
A 2012 diary.
A 2012 Taylor Swift calendar (not as good as the 2011 one but it has some good pics of her.)
A book called "Buried Alive" about the history of live burial.
A book called "Many Skies" about how things would be with different star systems.
A book called "Christmas-a candid history" about Christmas traditions
And my father asked me and my two brothers to shut their eyes. They did and I pulled my Father Christmas hat over my eyes to serve as a blindfold. When we could open our eyes and I could pull up my hat, we were each holding-a brand new blue plastic sledge. So if it snows in 2013 that will come in very handy.
A £15 I-tunes card
A book called "A horrid history of Christmas"
A £25 I-tunes card
And a book by Condalezza Rice.

I didn't just do this thread to boast about what I have though...I really do want to find out what the rest of you got for Christmas this year.

I haven't opened my stockings yet (Yes, even at 31 I go to my parents to get my stocking and open presents.) But really my only present this year is a big one - a new sleigh bed. My old bd frame was falling apart. I slept wonderfully last night in it!

Update!

I also got a new cover for my Michi purse and a flat screen tv for my living room. I <3 and am so grateful for my family!

Pair of mugs and DVD set for me and hubby.
Toiletry set from the mother-in-law.
Body butter set from stepdaughter.
Matching lip butter set and another DVD from myself.

I plan to treat myself to a lot of leftover Christmasy thingies that go on sale on Thursday. ;) After all, in Greek tradition, the big gift exchange day is New Year's.

Nothing in the way of gifts - parents decided to only buy for each other and my brothers didnt buy for each other or me. However, I got the gift of one more christmas with my grandmother which is all I really wanted.
