I spent Christmas up at my in-laws' place, surrounded by some terrific people - most interesting of all being mom-in-law's deacon, one of those people who really does talk the talk and walk the walk. We got to chatting and I admitted that while I wasn't religious I was still determined to do the right thing whenever I could, whatever the circumstances. The Dalai Lama once said "Kindness is my religion," and I think he was speaking for a great many people when he said that.
I didn't get a lot of goodies, but that's again one of those things that I don't really focus on. I'm happy just to still be here; everything else is gravy.

On a less heavy-duty note, I got Castlevania and Locoroco for the PSP — first two new games I've had for the console in a long time. I'd had my eye on both for a while, but ended up wishlisting them in time for the holidays.
