The Christmas Thread - 2011
I'd like for everyone to forget the work night out happened (and to give the majority of people their dues, they have), and to somehow have scraped a pass in the first 3 of my professional exams.
Granted, I won't find out if I've passed 'til mid-February, but it would be a nice present nonetheless.
Besides that, just to have a lovely Christmas (and hopefully have plenty of money to ride out January in relative comfort).
I'm pretty sure that I'm only getting one big present from my parents this year - specifically, a copy of the Super Deluxe Edition of Quadrophenia. I absolutely love that album, it turned my life around five years ago, so to get a 'complete' copy of it will be incredible.
I've received some little things from friends, mostly CDs and DVDs, and I know my sister has got be a copy of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, but other than that, anything else I get will be a surprise. I'm mainly hoping for a bit of cash to put towards an HDTV, so I can finally start playing Skyrim. To be completely honest though, Christmas this year has been much more about giving than receiving for me, and I'm glad I've been able to give so much to my friends and family in spite of my current financial situation.
I thought you said " A bear".
I want my Jewish friends to celebrate Christmas correctly. They never put up a tree, or sing carols. All they do is light some candles every day for about a week and they even dont always do that on Christmas. Last time I checked, Christmas was about the birth of Santa Claus, not some crappy candles. I've tried to tell them that they are celebrating the holiday wrong but all they do is laugh at me.
I didn't ask for anything this year. My mom ends up spoiling me pretty bad every Christmas though, it's pretty neat.
This also occurs to me. I ask for like one video game and I get a box full of awesome shit. It appears that she likes me a lot or something....
I want the same thing that I tell people every year: nothing.
If you feel the need to get me something, then go to the local toy store and spend the money on toys, then take them down to the local Toys for Tots.
As someone who grew up poor, I understand what it's like to go without presents for Christmas. No kid should go through that shit, and worse than that, no parent should feel useless because they can't afford some cool shit for their kid.
