SO what did we get (or give) for Xmas?

84 posts in this topic

The thread I made about donating a little something to Rappy / Damian has now been closed thanks to a user who chose not to express any human kindness but did choose to be vocal about said issue.

 

This is my last post here, so I wanted to say I've given a small amount to damien@neowin.net (paypal verified address).  It would be lovely if a few others did.  It's not about money, it's about humans showing humans some kindness and helping someone who could do with a night out.  If you disagree, feel free to disagree quietly.

 

Thanks for lord knows how many years here :)

 

Just to be clear, I didn't "like" your post for the "I'm leaving" part, but the rest of it. :)

 

I hope you change your mind dood. (Y)

I don't celebrate Christmas, but to keep the kids from not being "in" with their friends, bought them "christms gifts" :p, and also received Christmas gifts myself. a coffee machine, a jacket, and a rug. I also gifted a bunch of surface RTs to family members and a few friends. the rest got pots and pans or glass cups.

 

Smart.  RT's would return for a good bit of money so they could buy something nice.  Smart man.

Don't leave over one user. :( As I've said before, a lot of members supported you and your idea, so you should consider that before deciding to leave.

Got:  About 4 shirts and some ties

Gave:

Wife: A Movado watch, tickets to Billy Joel (for both of us), a gift card to spend a day at the spa

Son: 4 3DS games and a case for the 3DS, some clothes.

Various family and friends: too numerous to name individually

 

I also got an Xbox One in November which I wasn't going to wait to open :) so I guess that was a gift for myself and my son.

At times, giving gifts at Christmas becomes almost mechanical, and a chore; when this happens, it is worth stepping aside for a few moments to consider why exactly you give gifts at Christmas.
