Can confirm Beatley presents have been received. (A book of quotes from the fab four)

More presents to come today though...ahdn_john_08_gif

Received: Walrus and Elementary Penguin fuzzy slipper socks. An Abbey Road t-shirt. A bunch of original Beatles Monthly issues. A NEMS Beatles pendant (picture below - I wanted an original 60s NEMS item). Remastered Abbey Road on vinyl.

Sent: Christmas cards that had an octopus on them.

Chrimble done right, I'd say. I'm a happy Beatlemaniac.

No Beatles presents given or reduced a-hard-days-night-ringo-12 (it's all I could do to keep my hair on this year) but I have been listening to Wonderful Christmastime and Happy Xmas (bonus for Peppdog: also Little Saint Nick) repeatedly today. a-hard-days-night-george-9

I didn’t get any Beatles-related presents but I did give my dad the new Abbey Road on vinyl.

Beatley gifts had been received:  Beatle-themed guitar picks, a purse with a psychedelic Sgt Pepper 's pattern, a beginners' guitar book filled with Beatle songs, and tickets to see Ringo and his All-Starr Band. I also received an acoustic guitar, my lessons start next Saturday but I already spent half the day learning chords and technique via my older brother and my Beatley guitar songbook. 

I'm also going to use some of my Christmas money to purchase my first record player so I can finally start collecting records, which I've been wanting to do for a very long time now.  

Happy Holidays, lovely Forumpudlians! john-lennon-salute_gifjohn-lennon-salute_gifjohn-lennon-salute_gifheartheartheart

There's about 30 minutes of Christmas left here.  This year I got the RRS Archive Box.  That was my only Beatley gift I recieved.  I also got a New Vinyl copy of Hotel California.

 

Anyway Happy Christmas everyone.

Nothing directly Beatley for me giftwise, but my sister did give me a new subscription to Rolling Stone (like every year), and they'll surely cover any Beatles related stories during the upcoming year, so I'm counting it.
