In current common usage, swag has a number of meanings:
Illegally obtained goods. (We employ it that way ourselves in our "Self-Signaling Swag" article about crooks fingered by the electronic locators contained in the items they stole.)
Free stuff: promotional items, gift bags, goodies, and the like.
A decorative garland (festive season evergreens or those fashioned of other materials, whether displayed during the holiday season or at other times of the year) hung in such a way that loops of it hang freely.
A valance: an item of window dressing wherein fabric matching the drapes is gathered at one or more points along the curtain rod to produce decorative sweeps of cloth having the appearance of downward-hanging fans.
In Australia swag refers to the bundle of belongings carried by a swagman, a person those in North America would term a hobo. In that country to "go on the swag" means to become a tramp, and having "swags of" any particular item means having "lots of" that thing.

The word is also used as an adjective in "swag lamp" (a lighting fixture characterized by the electrical cord that feeds power to it dangling from the ceiling in a swag) and "swag curtain" (a type of drapery wherein one extremely long piece of fabric is used to fashion a curtain which hangs loose in eye-pleasing folds at each side of the window and has decorative loops of the cloth twined around the curtain rod).

Swag remains in the English language in some lesser-used forms, such as "to sway" and "to stagger." The term is also the likely root of "swagger," which either characterizes someone's walk as having a bold, exaggerated side-to-side movement or serves as a figurative term for describing someone's behavior as boastful, conceited and arrogant.

Spring / Woodlands area, but I don't have a bike yet. After a whole year of nothing but over-time at work as soon as I started putting money aside for a bike over-time went out the window killing my plans to get a bike by the end of April...

Why didn't you quote the entire Snopes article? Found it interesting they say that the oldest original meaning is "Secretly We Are Gay".
