    There was a member of staff at Carmarthen Tesco dressed as an elf, selling raffle tickets when I was on my summer hols, before August bank holiday image
  • I love Christmas!!!
  • Behave Schmunk'simage
  • Christmas isn't coming. It's just the commerical hype and bollox.

    And before anyone asks, no the SS thread is not starting until November. Now go back to enjoying Autumn.
  • Surely not yet!!!!!!!!!!!! Peeeerrrrllleeeaaase.image
  • Kwilter - you are excused if you are making me something on my list image
  • Any one mentioning Christmas before December deserves shooting. *does best scrooge impersonation* Bah Humbug!

    *sticks hand out for mince pie*

  • 15 weeks Saturday and counting image
  • Big boxes of chocs already on sale in both Asda and Tesco.  Oh and halloween costumes on sale in Asda tonight!
  • I bought  a christmast tree bauble at Hampton Court this week.  However, I suspect they are on sale all year to appeal to the US market.  It is purple, gold and sparkly and I am not at all sure it has made it home in one piece.
  • Christmas is coming! My firm started its Christmas operation in July.
    Even getting the Christmas catalogues in.

    Crackers anyone?

  • Christmas planning is in full swing in our household.
  • I love this time of year.  I actually like it when the nights start drawing in and it start feeling a bit more autumnal, and then you get the build up to christmas.  I wouldn't decorate until december, but I don't mind things starting to come in.  And you can't really go wrong with a big tin of chocs for a fiver image

    Is there a suitable punishment for someone starting a C-word thread early September?  image

    In our office, the first person to mention the C-word has to organise the Christmas party.  --- a job nobody wants.

  • We went to a pub on bank holiday Sunday and they had their Christmas menus out. <img />

    Edited as Firefox doesn't like the smilies today.
  • Aaaaargh!  "boxed mince pies" -  go wash your mouth out with soap and water. Abominable things. My OH bakes the most incredibly scrumptious mince pies, even my nephew who says he doesn't like mince pies, scoffs ours.

    Christmas? Noooooo....please let me have my birthday first!

  • Asdas sell boxed mice pies all through the year...............they are one of the few supermarkets that realis


  • *bangs head on desk and groans*

    I like Christmas, I really do.

    I just hate all the hype, and most of all the anxiety of where and with whom you will spend Christmas.

    I'm already dreading it, because by this time last year my mother had got a a pre-emptive strike in and I'm just waiting for this years demand  image

    I could beat her to it, but I don't WANT to be playing that game, and planning what I'm doing fifteen weeks hence yet!

  • Thanks for that info SN, I like mince pies and didn't know Asda carried on selling them image

    Wilkie, book a skiing holiday NOW!!  image
  • Don't tempt me Nam...... 

    when it all gets a bit OTT, I just fantasize about going off to a lovely chalet, with an open fire, just the one person I would really like to spend Christmas with.

    Skiing on Christmas day, in a fluffy layer of new snow with the sun shining in a blue sky.

    The trouble is, that's not HIS idea of the perfect Christmas image

    We're off to Mittenwald week before Christmas... that's not solving the Christmas problem though...

    Last year I claimed I couldn't get annual leave... LOL
