Post your X-Mas Stuff!
« on: December 22, 2017, 02:07:29 PM »
First time I'll be home for X-mas in 16 years so I had to remember how to buy presents again..
Bought my parents an Dash Air Fryer and a Mexican Train Dominoes game set from Target using my 15% discounts..
And bought myself the complete 60's TV series of Batman:

When I was a kid, I had a friend whose family was super Baptist. He would tell me that Xmas was a term non-Christians used to "X out" Christ.

In reality, X is the first character in the Greek word for Christ.

I got a lot of practical stuff this year, including a wok for delicious stir fry.  I also got some comics (Golden Age Wonder Woman Vol. 1 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Ultimate Collection Vol. 1) and a cool T-Shirt from a friend.

Said TV shirt is a reference to this PSA that I loved as a youth.

It's basically the map that shows up early on in the ad.
