Happy Day After Chrismukkawanzaawalidan!

So. Random vehicular vandalism and a raw sore throat that I woke up with this morning aside, we actually had a pretty good Christmas. It teetered on the verge of drama several times, but some skillful maneuvering kept things on track. Of course, we're all exhausted (Sister Girl and I were up wrapping presents until 2:30 am Christmas Eve for reasons I will not get into), and I could lapse back into a cold medicine-induced coma at any moment, but we seem to have emerged unscathed.

So: What was the best Chrismukkawanzaawalidan present you got this year? I got the entire set of Sin City books, because Amazon had an awesome collection exclusive going, and the new Alison Weir, Queen Isabella, which I immediately started reading even though people hadn't even gone home yet (oh, please. The whole family was glued to a marathon of old Bob Hope USO specials on the Military Channel. No one noticed me. Also: yes, there really is a Military Channel). Besides the Zen Nano, which makes me very happy despite holding only 123 songs, the LIARS, I basically got a stack of DVDs (DANGERMOUSE OMG!), a pile of chocolate, a ridiculous (read: totally awesome) number of books, and a stockingful of Burt's Bees. Oh, and gingerbread bubblebath, which is teh yum. So what did you get?
