35. impressive!
That's Christmassy in so many ways, amazona.

First, it was something that required a lot of thought and effort on your part (rather than just doling out cash). There are some places in the world (e.g. Holland) where a gift like this is considered more suitable for Christmas than something bought from the store.

Second -- you've made an effort to reach across political lines and see someone as a human being, rather than belonging to a political party. That's VERY true to the spirit of the season.

Third -- it's a surprise, and something that the person in question may not have thought of doing for himself -- which is often more welcome than something that they already knew was forthcoming!
