    Do we really have to put up with all the bl**dy Christmas adverts on the box 8 weeks before the event?
    I think tv Christmas adverts should be banned until the begining of December.
    Yep, I know, Baa humbug

    Yes Baa humbug. Not that I've seen any of the adverts, I've not watched TV since mid July when we sold it. have one in the van buts its just laying in a cupboard. Do watch the occasional dvd on the lap top though.

    Worked at Waitrose for 15 years and putting the christmas stuff out on 1st October was the norm and then as stock ran out on christmas eve we put easter eggs out, well all the small cream egg sized ones anyway.

    Used to get home late xmas eve, knackerered and then people wondered why you didn't get excited about all things christmassy.

    Never mind left there and went somewhere growing xmas trees. Work the logic out with that one Ha Ha, or should it Ho Ho Ho.

    Shawn.

    It is very difficult to separate the real meaning of christmas from the retail meaning of Christmas which is to separate as many people as they can from as much as money as they can even when many cannot afford it and get into trouble financially buying their kids what fashion demands they just must have, just wait, it won't be long now before you will see adverts for payday loans with insane interest rates.

    Christmas. The least Christian time of the year.

    Put our tree up yesterday..............................



    But it is back down again, we have bought a new much larger one, need to get a load more baubles, Bev's idea was put it up, we can then dress a bit of it then multiply how many we need, seemed a half decent plan, until our niece popped round and now thinks we are mad, mostly true though maybe :)

    My birthday is 18th December and I always begrudged Christmas being under way before my birthday, now I am older and especially since becoming a granddad last year :):):):):) can't wait this year (y)

    But ours will stay away till December (y)

    Hubby's birthday on the 18th as well, I'm on the 6th so usually put tree up about that time.
    I love this time of year usually put up a couple of trees and making present plans at the moment.
    I can't imagine not being excited about xmas.
    5 years ago I had a huge cancer op on my 60th birthday so had tree decorated, cards written and pressies bought a few weeks before, I was discharged on 17th and was still excited about xmas even although I could only eat mashed potato, mushy peas and gravy and trifle for dessert. Think it was my best xmas, it meant more. Roll on many more.

    I don't mind too much if they start having Christmas adverts on the TV now, but the thing that really gets me down is on Christmas morning, when the "Sale Starts 4:00am Boxing Day" adverts come on.
    It's like they're wishing away Christmas and we've been looking forward to it for ages
