Merry Christmas from Destructoid, fools! It is Christmas day, where we celebrate the date that Pope Julius I decided upon for the relocation of Jesus Christ's birthday. 

Of course, Christmas is supposed to be about all that peace and love nonsense, but we all know that it's really about the swag. So, once again we ask what kind of neat stuff you received! Share your latest haul with the Destructoid community, and read on below to see what the Destructoid editors received!

Also, HAPPY HOLIDAYS YOU SUGARY LITTLE PIGLETS!

Sterling: I already got an early gift, which is the rather nice coat that has popped up in Jimquisitions. I also got a very appreciated Father Ted boxset. Watched the Christmas special this morning and it is still hilarious stuff. Oh, and a Trinity Killer Bobblehead.

Aziz: I think I got trolled by King Friday as I know own a giant Jeff Gordon NASCAR number "24" poster. So, uh, that's the only Christmas thing I expect. Wait, I'll count those cookies from 2K too.

Niero: GorillaNation sent me monkey slippers

Grim: This was the best Christmas in years because I built myself a shiny new PC with my own money. No need for a middleman. If I get anything worth mentioning, I'll do another response.

Sarkar: My mom already told me she got me a sweater. If anything else comes along, I'll let you folks know.

And MERRY CHRISTMAS, Y'ALL!

Bennett: I got an iPhone4 and another secret, really amazing present that I can't tell you guys about. But it's amazing. :)

Chester: I got some awesome stuff, but am under NDA until next Christmas.

Tolentino: Got four t-shirts and a luggage weighing scale (wut), but I GAVE my 11-year old nephew a copy of Demon's Souls. Will he think it a gift or like a lump of coal?

Long: I got precisely what I needed most: a plane ticket home and clothes. Merry Christmas, everyone! :D

North: I got a ton of shit. I'm fuckin' spoiled.

Holmes: I don't know about you guys, but at this point in my life, the only stuff I get for Christmas is stuff that I didn't want enough to buy myself, and stuff that I didn't know existed. In the first colum, I got four games; Super Mario All-Stars Wii, Vanquish, Goldeneye, and Fling Smash. All great games, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a tad partial towards Dick.

In the second column I got some Pac-Man pants. They are... Pac-Man pants. I will wear them. 

Finally, since I was back at my folks' house, I went into my old room and found a bunch ot +10 year old stuff that I plan to use as set dressing for a new show I'm working on. I was particularly happy to find and old Servbot plushie, my import copy of Tobal 2, and... 

A Boglin. A one-handed Boglin. 

Pics to come.

Razak: Ok, not all my gifts since I was at my future in-laws house, but I got pleny of candy, a hilarious cow hat, two gorgeous ties, a pair of James Bond cufflinks, a book on Eiji Tsuburaya (the guy behind Godzilla and Ultraman), some kitchen stuff, and. Schott brothers pea coat (basically bthe nicest pea coat you can own, its amazing). More to come when I see my parents and other family tomorrow.
