Hanukkah / Christmas gifts, 2011 edition


Recommended Posts

Well, if they're celebrating Hanukkah, yes, gifting may have started already. That, or family/friend gift exchanges that might have happened before the date.

I have a horrifying Spanish Santa Chihuahua that sings something about Santa in Spanish at me, and a gag YA novel whose author's name also happens to share that of our program's former director from our office White Elephant exchange, it's pretty cute. Better than the dried boxed scorpion one of my coworkers got. :P

I got £20 in a card from one of my brothers. So yeah, good haul for me.

And on a non-gift note, I was finally able to apologise to someone for being a gigantic prick to them several years ago, as I hadn't spoken to them since. It means nothing to no one else, but to be able to just move on from it, is a great gift for me.
