I don't think I got my ADAM at Christmas time, but it was probably around
there someplace. I ordered the expansion module version from Montgomery Ward
and I remember the day it showed up on my doorstep in this huge box. There
was a large back order on them at that time and it wasn't even supposed to
show up for another couple of months.
Unfortunately the video went out on it after a short while and I had to
drive it 100 miles to the Honeywell service center for repair.

Merry Christmas. We did enjoy gifts and food in family, as usual.
I have a similar memory of my xmas '84. It was my first computer under the
tree, a Commodore Vic-20; and my older brother got a console ColecoVision at
the same time. And since then, I did want to code my own videogames and I
did it thunsands of times. In fact, I can't remember a week I didn't program
something, except during vacatios in family.
