Who had a U2 Christmas?
« on: December 25, 2017, 04:44:05 PM »
I was spoilt yesterday. My wife gave me the No Line On the Horizon box set with the book and Linear. And later, my parents & sister gave the Songs of Experience super deluxe box.

A very U2 christmas indeed :)

Check out our news site to see a U2 busking Christmas - an hour of Bono covering Christmas carols in Dublin over the last ten years

I might be getting a deluxe vinyl version of SOE. Hasn't arrived yet though.

I was really hoping for another Christmas video from the boys. That made my day last year!

Wow she's talented!!

I tell her that all the time, but she still doubts herself! She knows those are my two favorite Bono “personas” so I was thrilled to get this as a gift from her.

I received the Achtung Baby piano/guitar songbook as well as some sweet u2 table coasters😀
My husband also designed a shirt that says "free yourself to be yourself"
It's pretty cool

U2 related or not, THIS is the best sort of gift. Personal and from the heart. What a talent!

Yes, it's loads of fun giving away U2 stuff.  I'm hoping someone might love them as much as me sometime.

Three years late I know, but I got SOI on vinyl. Now I can play that great Crystal Ballroom 12” remix  :D

My wife gave me U2 The Definitive Biography. Gotta finish a few other books I’ve bought before I start it.
