Happy holidays! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Solstice, Festivus, Hogmanay, New Year’s, Epiphany/Three Kings Day, Boxing Day or the birthdays of science fiction authors Arthur C. Clarke and Philip K. Dick on December 16, it’s that time of year for festive foods and gift giving.
We had a geeky yuletide at our house. Many DOCTOR WHO shirts, books and DVDs passed between my relatives. I got a copy of the newly-released blu-ray of ELYSIUM, a “Shinicus Serenitus” FIREFLY t-shirt, and a toy Astrid from the game SKYRIM.
Santa brought me a steampunk style “Crazy Combat Catapults” kit.
My husband received a LORD OF THE RINGS Lego kit and our daughter made him a MINECRAFT chest.
