Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! No matter what or how you celebrate this season (even if you don’t celebrate a thing), please take a moment to appreciate your family and friends (be they online or offline). Slow down if you can. Watch your favorite movie or tv show. Play your favorite games. Eat your favorite foods.

Remember this is a great time to make or celebrate some memories so get to it and have a safe and happy Holiday Season…

    Very merry Christmas wishes Retroist, from me and the dragons.

    Knubberrub flew off with the nog-filled chalice.
    Just like last year.
    But he also sends his best, I’m sure.

    No forum, so Ill ask here; Whad’ya get for Christmas? In addition to the commercials DVD, I got the DVD series of Greatest American Hero, an original Quiz Wiz with a second boxed question pak, a couple more Gameboys in special color variations, some Fraggle Rock shotglasses and more……………

  3. @mwentworth – that is a good haul. I did not get much in the way of gifts this year, but I did get to spend it with my family, which is always great.

  4. @mwentworth I’m still stuck here at work, friend. We’ll be opening up our gifts when I get home…2 hours and 58 minutes to go. Hopefully my Wife isn’t reading this post but I think I may have received the Adventures of Brisco County Jr. DVD set…or it’s a bunch of heavy socks. :)

    Hope everyone had a great holiday! I got more than I deserved. A few years back my mother started pickin out some old toy or vintage item and giving it to me at Christmas. This year I got an old tin friction powered motorcycle and a set of Dogpatch USA salt and pepper shakers.

    Meh, Mary Pickford and her fancy magic lantern shows are probably why I can’t get girls to come over and look at my collection of Thomas Nast original cartoon art.

  7. @mwentworth…If I had a dollar for every time you blamed the invention of film for something I would be a rich man! ; )
    @retroist…all I’m saying is a highly sexualized retrospective on the silent film industry could bring a lot of great traffic to the site. I am a visionary. Plus it was tasteful….okay, kind of tasteful…

  8. The most retro thing I got this year was a DC Superheroes Filmation Cartoons DVD. Other than that, I got the first season of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.

    What?! It was on sale for like 6 bucks! Couldn’t pass that up!

  9. I don’t know whether to thank you for giving my site a plug, or smack you upside the head for posting this photo from my site without permission (major pet peeve of mine).

    @erin: Nothing like complaining 4 months after the fact. :p

    Here’s a pic from one of my childhood xmases:
    Transformers, gobots, legions of power, and a life savers candy book (back when they still had 10 rolls, and included the breath savers ones). If that doesn’t scream 80s, I don’t know what does.

    Does anyone here even remember legions of power? They don’t seem to have been very famous.
