    Well, seeing how Christmas day is coming up and some people get to open their presents and things on Christmas Eve I thought I'd start the official "what did you get" thread. As noted in the title, this is also for any other holiday celebrated, not just Christmas. So post what you got!

    I got a pretty good haul this year:
    3TB External HDD
    24" LED Monitor
    GeForce GTX 650 GPU
    8GB of RAM
    Motorola Headset (Will post model later, too lazy to check it now)
    $20 gift card to Pizza Hut
    1 Year of Xbox Live
    Cookie Monster Hoodie
    Pair o' Jeans
    Some pretty nice cologne
    and that's about it really.

    So far....

    200$ Cash
    100$ Visa Prepaid Card
    Playstation Allstars for PS3
    A very nice watch
    50$ PSN Card
    Enough candy to kill a diabetic

    Pretty good Christmas so far, been lucking out with sales for the past week too, so the money has been going to good use. Still havent gotten gifts from my mom or brother yet, or anything else unexpected that might have came in.

    This year saw my family abandon me and make me homeless, my girlfriend betray me, and my closest friends move to another city. So this year for Christmas, I got drunk.

    Got an iPhone 4 about a week early and I'm loving it. I'll probably get some cash tomorrow and might buy some iTunes cards or an otterbox case.

    Well we got some Debbie Downers in here.

    But I got...
    • Assassin's Creed Liberation Vita bundle
    • Samsung Galaxy S3
    • A booster box for Return to Ravnica (choice rares include Steam Vents, Hallowed Fountain, Supreme Verdict, Detention Sphere, etc)
    • A fancy pocket knife (from my brother)
    • A Walking Dead calendar
    • An old history book and a WWII planes calendar (from my grandpa)
    • Cards Against Humanity and both expansion packs (from my cousin and her family)
    • A money clip (basically a smaller, more compact wallet)
    • A CD disk cleaner (my car's CD player doesn't work so we thought it was just dirty. Unfortunately I tried it and still no luck).
    Some pics (these were posted on my Facebook if you're friends with me). Only chose the more mysterious items (you all know what a Vita, Galaxy S3, etc look like).

    The book:

    The knife:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Both pics were taken with the Galaxy S3. Usually I'm a better photographer but it's phone pics so IDGAF.

    Nothing so far but My sister's family gift I got them (making sure they get home for Christmas) will more than give back once they arrive later today. Also I never cooked a turkey before so today will no doubt remind me of that episode of mr. bean.

    Eh..might as well have been nothing..... Aunt got me a book on tourism of Japan....which is great (book is ignorant) if you want to look like a stereotypical American tourist. So I'm donating that to a library. It might help someone else...eh why waste...and if they don't want it...I'll be forced to recycle it.

    I'm not big on cooked fish but I've heard good things about smoked salmon. How does one prepare it? I mean do you cook it or serve it with anything in particular?

    You do not cook it, you have it on a bagel with cream cheese. I didn't have a bagel, so I used little round toasts.

    I have one of those two but really I only carry my driver's license, some cash, and a debit card. Maybe a gift card or my DCI card depending on the occasion.

    So far:
    • Wii U (Got it at launch since I paid for half of it, but it sort of counted as an early gift)
    • New Super Mario Bros U (Again, got it at launch, but counted as an early gift)
    • Memory Foam Pillow w/ Cooling Gel (Very comfy, and the cooling gel inside works really well)
    • Neck Massager (It works a bit too well though...Made my neck numb after a while)
    • Clothes (Needed some new shirts and pants)
    Going over my grandparents' house later today, so I'll probably got some little things and cash like usual. Not entirely sure what I want to spend it on, but I'll most likely get the Black Ops 2 season pass and another game or something.
