When you hear "Happy Holidays", what do you think?
That should say Merry Christmas! Jesus is the reason for the seaon.

I got so much stuff, I couldn't even tell you. But I'll try!

1. Plush Companion Cube...so awesome! Very Happy

2. Medal of Honor: Airborne...great game, though a little short.

3. NewEgg.com gift card...perfect for a geek like me.

4. Halo Box Set: Ghosts of Onyx, Contact Harvest, and The Cole Protocol...looking forward to reading these!

5. Patriot XT 16GB travel drive...awesomeness!

6. Microsoft Arc mouse...again awesome.

7. Coffee gift cards...I'm set for school next semester! Wink

8. A devotional book for every day of the year.

9. Christian college choir CD...West Coast Baptist College, have a friend who goes there, great choir.

10. Padme got me a Han Solo magnet. Pretty cool, trying to find a place in my car that's metal! But so far no luck. Confused

And if there's anything else, I'm forgetting, ha. Was an awesome Christmas! Surprisingly, the only Star Wars thing I got was from Padme. It was more of a tech-savvy/geeky Christmas for me. Very thankful for all the gifts. Smile

Star Wars Visions

a new Star Wars hoodie

New Star Wars shirt w/ the millenium falcon

and the best gift of all....
A new motorcycle helmet! I don't ride but its something I have been trying to do for years. When we lived in DC it was way too scary. Now that we live out in Denver its more realistic. So all I need now is a class to get my license. Oh, and an actual motorcycle.

Hey, Mara, this isn't exactly pertinent, although I thought you may be interested. I have been reliably informed by a friend that Jewish scientists have determined that Jesus' birthday was on (or around) 25th September, and that the 25th December is the date of conception.
Anyway, let's move on to what Christmas is really about: presents! Oh! I have a few, very nice ones! But I've forgotten, Christmas traditions. Well, our tradition is for me to start Eve with yelling at my sister to be down in time for midnight, where we open our presents (discovering to no one's surprise that my sister has gone doolally on her Christmas present buying again), despite everyone's insistence that we're all going to bed at 11. At which point we go to bed at 2ish, where, in the morning, it's a mad dash to eat all the Christmas tree chocolates, and pull as many crackers as possible. After that it's merely damage control.
Now, presents! Vortex. I haven't even managed to start reading it yet, but I shall today. The Jedi Path. I've got a Jedi cred! And TFUII. Despite all the bad things that was said about this, I liked it very much! Also, a dictionary on the old sayings of my county. Which means if you see me saying some odd words, don't worry, it's merely me trying out my Sussex lingo! The Legion by Simon Scarrow. The Gladiator was so good I almost chose Legion over Vortex! A new Xbox which I had to trade in my old one for, but worth it. And, wait for it: Robot Chicken! I'm in love. Fifa 11, where I've discovered that my football skills on the pitch do not transfer well off the pitch, and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, which I've only started playing. 24, which is looking forlorn on my shelf, and lastly, well, is a little private, but the best one of all. There is a woman, I sent her a poem (don't laugh) and in return she said she loves me. Best. Present. Ever.

I'd seen a program that figured it closest to April 17th I remembered that cause it's my son's birthday. But they used a bunch of bible references and climate calculations and stuff. But even then one has to doubt it.

I think it's fine that they use the 25th to recognize the date personally. As long as people remember that other cultures had the date in their traditions long before Jesus was born and can all get along, I'm good.

Excellent gifts Life!

Your tradition sounds like fun!

Fun Facts With The Bible. I always find this technical stuff irrelevant.
