Hi all, Does anyone know when Christmas begins please? l am wondering, because my wife has been shopping for weeks now, and we have enough food and goodies to feed a small country. Now, when l attempt to open the Pringles, "STOP"! she shouts, "They are for Christmas". This is repeated if l attempt to open a bottle of whiskey, brush shoulders with the peanuts, or come into close contact with anything exotic that we don't usually have. Do l have to wait until starters orders, and then eat and drink all and sundry in one day? We also are beginning to resemble a micro brewery, which, of course, cannot be used "until Christmas", "in case someone comes round". Which goes without saying, no one does cos they are stuffed with all their food and drink. And if someone should venture round, l could bet diamonds that they won't have a drink because they are driving! So, l have got a mountain of food, and a lake of alcohol to get through, "at Christmas"! When does it begin? Craig.
