Merry Christmas everybody! :) May God's blessing come upon all of us on this Christmas Day when Christ our Savior is born again of the Blessed Virgin Mary, especially in our hearts! ;) :)
So, this topic is to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and to share Christmas stories of the past and present...and to tell everyone what you got for this Christmas and if you want too, what you got at past Christmases. So pretty much talk about or say anything related to Christmas.
I shall start! So far for this Christmas...I got a new, handmade hat made by my aunt, money in a card from the same aunt and my uncle, a golf certificate from my other aunt and uncle, and a check from my grandpa and grandma! :) The rest of my presents I will get to open tomorrow on Christmas Day. ;) And of course, just as I thought would happen, today I was perpetually teased by my relatives about the Thanksgiving dinner I missed last month! :angry: <_< ;) :D
That's all for now! Until later,

I moved this because it seemed that it was more meant for Christmas Story telling, and I think Campfire is the correct place for it.
I got a new rockin' sweater from Mum and Dad, an ornament from one Grandma, and stocking stuff such as sausage, juggling balls, and the usual. Nothing else so far...I'm getting myself some more though... :o <_<

Merry Christmas!!! Remember that Christmas doesn´t end until Epiphany, so keep on celebrating and telling people Merry Christmas until then.
From my real family, I got a $30 itunes certificate, a compass (I was needing that here in Santiago), and some candy. From my host family here in Chile, I got a pick holder to stick on my guitar and a Charango (a small guitat-like instrument that is native to Chile).
It was a little hard to celebrate Christmas in 90 degree weather. But ultimately, its all the same.

It's got to be tons different down there. The phrase "white christmas" only means...well nothing. Do you guys have Christmas Trees down there?

Merry Christmas everyone!
Lets see. I got two movies: Prince Caspian and Thou Shalt Laugh III. I got a new watch, some candy, some after-shave, a new pair of leather gloves, and a nice hat. I think Santa was good to me this year!!
Hope you all had a great Christmas!
Talk to you all later!

The Strat-Man is really lucky.
Anyway, I got a ten-dollar transfer of funds on iTunes, (my mom) :lol: and a repair on my old watch which I had in New York and broke this summer, besides the normal stocking stuff. Last year I got an iPod shuffle from my aunts in New Mexico, and this year (ha!) they sent us a Wii console! It's hilarious to see all my siblings constantly messing around with the Miis they've made!

Hey Everybody! Merry Christmas! I haven't stop saying that yet even though people may think you don't know what your talking about. Also, Happy New Year to everybody! I plan on staying up to ring in 2009! :)
Thanks Nate for moving this topic into Campfire! I meant to post it in Campfire but wasn't paying attention...so I accidentally posted it in Randomosity. I was going to ask you to move it...but as I can see....you did already because your the tyrant and have an amazing ability of reading other peoples' minds. ;) :lol: j/k
And Tom...your reaction was the same as mine!....last Sat. after choir when we took the Sanchezzes and Gotchers home to the Sanchez's house...I went in and I saw Brendan and his sister playing Wii...and I was like..WOWWEE!!! You have Wii?!?!?! :blink: So yeah Tom! Well, anyway, at least I'm thankful that I got to try it there. And I have played it before at other peoples' houses. It just not fair that everyone has Wii and we don't, right Tom? ;) :D
So..to finish off my list...on Christmas Day, I got three brand new ties, especially a black tie that I need for the Christmas choir concert, more chocolates and candies as gifts from various people, another check and more cash in Christmas cards, and...Oh!... two pairs of brand new gloves...one pair of sports glove and (yes just like some of you guys) one pair of leather gloves. So yeah...I guess I was pretty good too. Or was I? <_< :D j/k
