I'm well up for Christmas now.
Is this the christmas thread? We need the forum.
I've got secret santa vegan questions to ask.
Rating mince pies.
Sourcing lebkuchen (have eaten two bags so far).
Trying to remember if kittyP likes harry potter as primark have HP baubles...
Gawd bless ya' Mr Murdoch!
I don't see what the big problem is tbh.
You realise that that sort of thing needs to be booked probably at least a couple of months in advance if you want to get in, right?
Anything Christmassy should wait until after Halloween at the very earliest, and ideally until after December 1st. Though my son managed to totally confuse the issue last year by insisting on dressing up as Santa Claus for Halloween.
Yes it understand that. It still made me grumpy though.
Decs go up (apart from advent calendars obvs) in our house when school breaks up. Last year it was very late, I think we put the tree up on the 22nd and had it down again day after Boxing Day
Yep, string him up!!!
"More than half of the British public (53 per cent) say they are not at all religious – a figure that has increased by five percentage points since 2015 and by 19 percentage points since 1983, when just three in 10 people deemed themselves non-religious ..."
Record number of British people say they have no religion
Happy Saturnalia !
Since when has Christmas been about religion - those pics say it all; its all about indulgance, excess, comsumerisms Etc.
not a big fan of sexy santa wear I have to say.
I really like spotting ridiculous Xmas products.
A friend spotted this lovely Xmas bleach in Sainsbury's:
NEWS ALERT - the lights go on TODAY Rita Ora Switches On Our Christmas Lights With The NSPCC - Oxford Street
search me. A popular culture person?
Why tonight, I wonder?
Let's hope the rain continues through 'till midnight then...
She's pretty famous. You probably do know of something she's done if you have a think about it.
I think I might have better things to do with my time than try and recall a Rita Ora song.
Looks out of window; it's not raining at the mo, though the ground is a little wet.
She sang songs. I wouldn't know one if I heard it. I would not know her if she hit me in the face!
It's raining here and heading for town.
(I thought she ran The Cabin on Corrie )
From a London rag, it's official
"The festive season officially kicked off in London as thousands of people watched the Oxford Street Christmas lights switch on."
I am still none the wiser as to who that woman is
Article describes Oxford St as London's busiest shopping street. Assuming they don't mean busiest as in numbers of buses clogging up the place, is it really busy with shoppers? Think the last time I bought anything there was 1998, some trainers. Who goes there to do shopping? Westfield's 10 minutes away by tube if you really want to walk around shops touching stuff before heading home to order it off the internet...
If I decide pouring bleach in my eyes is the only way to escape the onslaught of Christmas crap that's all over the place already, I'll make sure to choose a different brand.
it's easy enough to find out. she's quite a big pop star so i'm sure you might be able to find a picture on Google
I have just seen a customer coming out of a supermarket wearing a Santa hat.
ITS JUST WRONG
Here's some pics from around town
I loved these:
