    Of course Christmas is truly about giving and not getting, but I thought it would be cool to see what everyone is asking for and might get. Id tell you all what I was getting Becky (something freaking awesome!) But she might read this thread and then find out.

    Im asking for a guitar from rondomusic and a slayer hoodie.

    I told everyone to get me gift cards from Dick's so I can pickup equipment for my home gym. I'm ok if I get nothing, I'm looking forward to the food more than anything.

    My mom makes a killer cheesecake, the recipe was passed down from my grandma. I spent Thanksgiving alone, so I'm grateful that I can be around family for Christmas and I'm hosting so there will be leftovers and did I mention HAM!

    I look forward to the time off.

    My employer closes from just before Christmas to just after New Year. I’ll still be “on call” but usually nothing ever happens...

    In terms of presents, I never get jack sh1t, but that’s ok, I buy myself what I want or need as necessary. Same for Mrs Lux. We don’t exchange gifts at Christmas. Better to just concentrate on the children.

    Cheers

    My gf is taking an antique wooden briefcase type thing and we're going to try to make it into a pedal-board-carrier thing. Bit of a craft project, and may or may not work out. But it'll be fun to try.

    Tons of Poetry/Decadent books and these DVDS. Ron Asheton V was an early gift.

    Case for my flying v. I'll possibly build another guitar after Christmas after the wife and kid get all that they want.

    Nothing at all.
    Been thinking about lost family members and friends.
    It's gonna be depressing but it will pass.
    I hope everyone gets what they want.

    Great idea. Find a used sporting goods store or Craigslist some weight plates.

    Dick's Sporting Goods doesn't have locations everywhere. in those places, your post is much more humorous! :laugh2:

    I asked for a cheap (cheap-cheap) bass, I regret selling mine.
    I also asked for gift cards to the local guitar store and the local record store.

    Truthfully, I'm just stoked to have ten days off in a row with my girl.
