NWR wishes you all the best for the holiday season.

Everyone here at Nintendo World Report would like to wish our readers a happy and healthy holiday season. We hope you get everything you wanted under your tree!

Thanks for reading, and here's to a great 2010!

P.S. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to playing New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

So what is everybody doing during this Christmas time?

Merry Christmas everyone!!! I have frequented the site for quite a while, and am a big fan of all the podcasts. So thanks NWR for all the great content that you guys produce all year long!

@ Maxi - I for one am waiting around to go to midnight Mass (thus I am on NWR on Christmas Eve); my family usually opens one present each afterward and I believe I have figured out which packages contain the good things (e.g. Spirit Tracks), and which ones are clothes  ;D
Yet despite the fact that I am in my twenties, I know that my mom will restrict me from opening anything major until "the morning". We also still suffer through the Santa routine, even though we all have placed presents for each other in their respective stockings. Ah, well, it's Christmas.

Happy Chrimbo everyone!

In Japan Christmas is officially "over" now, as they celebrate it on the 24th.....but for me, the ever-stubborn foreigner here - I won't be getting my Spirit Tracks till later today!

Hppy Buttered Camels everyone!

May your camels remain warm, buttery, full of flavour and absolutely moist.

Dude! My family had the same traditions as that until I started working most Christmas eves after high school. We were usually forced to open the presents from our grandparents because they were clothes that either didn't fit or we didn't like and our parents always wanted us to save 'the good ones' for the next day as well (also in part because I would have stayed up all night playing mine  ;D )

My family does the same thing, too. We have our token "pajama" Christmas Eve gift.

It was usually a lot more exciting when I was younger (and both of my older siblings were around every year), but it's still amusing.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Merry Christmas to the greatest Nintendo community around!

For the Christmas Eve gift, try to make it something you don't have to wait until tomorrow to make use of. Like one of those meat and cheese assortments.

Christmas is always hectic for me because my wife and I visit her dad's place, her mom's place, and then usually fly up to Canada for a few days (although we didn't fly up there this year for various reasons).  I've done crazy things like visit her dad's place one weekend, fly up North to see my family the following week, and then fly back on Christmas day to spend time at her Mom's.  That's a lot of travel.

Basically we ended up having a standoff of sorts when I (at random) picked up Spirit Tracks straight off that night and after much staring down and sad looks I was allowed to open it. I was dumb enough to start playing it and really regretted it when I was told that I was driving the family to my grandparents' (three hour drive) bright and early that morning.

Merry Christmas, everyone.  We've been on the road since Monday, so I've been rather disconnected from things lately.  We got snowed into my parents house, so my wife hasn't had her family christmas yet, and mine is delayed a day.  Mother Nature is no friend of mine.

At least it was your parent's house and not the in-laws? ;)

Happy Kwanzaa, you guys!

I think Happy/Merry Christmahanakwanzatetaramadanaka pretty much wraps it all up into one nice long all inclusive Holiday Greeting.
