This might be a bit early for some of you, but in Norway this is about the time all the presents are open and paper is everywhere. But anyway, what did you guys get this year for Christmas? Something special?
Me myself got a Canon mv700i, and 3ds max 7 students license. Think this was my best Christmas ever.
Now, how about you guys?

Ok - here's what I got:
Several books (The latest 'Adrian Mole' one, and a couple of Discworld that I've not read yet).
The usual assortmant of bits and bobs - enough sweets + chocolates to last me a year, a callender, random puzzle/"executive toy" style things, showergels and aftershave etc.
Some new clothes
and best of all - one of those MILLION CANDLE POWER torches
Finally I have a lighting solution AND a way to blind random passers by, IN ONE!
Also, I got a Christmas bonus from work, and with that, I bought GTA: San Andreas - so I guess that kinda counts as a present too.
All in all, it's not been too bad!

'That's all'???? Dude, you got a FRICKIN SNOWBOARD! That's awesome!
As atom said I got the JBL ONSTAGE circular speakers for my iPod (Which somehow made my iPod only able to play the song '1985'- I'm serious).
I also got some so-so DVDs- The Andy Griffith Show, this weird movie called 'Dave', and the best of Adam Sandler.
I also got Seinfeld Season Three which is spectacular.
My grandmother got atom and I both Motorola Video Capable cell phone upgrades- mine is defective though- and we each got new PS2's (a mistake by my grandmother, she meant to get DS's
I got the two games I wanted most- Jak III and Rathchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal.
atom got Smallville Season 3 and Family Guy: Volume 2. He also got a 20'' flat panel TV.
My friend Chase got a Dell Dimension XPS with a 4 gig processor. Lucky.
My birthday's in three days, so I'm hoping for some other good stuff. A DS may be on the way. The 200 bucks that I was saving up to eventually buy an XL1s was spent on presents for others, so I'm gonna have to start re-saving. Merry Christmas y'all and may ADV3 soon
be with you.
