I've no idea... we don't usually open our presents til the evening, but I used to have the tradition of doing it in the morning. So... what'd everyone else get?

I open my presents Christmas Eve, Polish tradition. So here goes... not much, though presents don't matter to me: 80gig 7200RPM 8mb cache drive for my desktop, Minority Report DVD, Playstation 2 DVD remote, money, and of course.. clothes.

I got some clothes (a really cool shirt), some candy and food and stuff, a magnetic roll-up dart board (works much better than you'd think), a 3 Liter magnum of Heiniken, a Dremel, Linux Kernel Programming, a shot glass that says "I drink to make other people more interesting", and a Mindcandy DVD.

My wife and I don't do Christmas anymore. Some small items to and from friends though and since it's my birthday as well, I get some loot anyway.

This year, some cool shirts (Army of Darkness, others), and a couple knick knacks.

Don't get much, but then again, I don't ask for, nor hint at, anything. ;)

I was told there were free peanuts in here...

I got a lot of clothes for Christmas, which is fine with me. I also got my
third DVD player and a GeForce 4. :) I got a strangely large amount of
Tupperware, too.

Can never go wrong with tupperware.

I got some clothes (read: boxers and a shirt. Good shirt, says "This is my Christmas Present (gee, thanks santa)"

I got a small toolkit to go along with my larger size one. Only thing in there that I don't already have is a bendable ratchet.

I got some cash and a gift certificate to Fry's Electronics.

Okay, in that case I extent my warmest seasonal greetings to the both of you.... I know it's not as nice as crispy new hardware under the tree, but it's the thought that counts.
