Pete, if you want help with Photoshop to show you how to edit the F word out of the image, I'm sure someone here could help.

And I agree with the sentiment (sorry Barrie).

For me, I only want to think about Christmas when I have finished work for two weeks, when I can stop feeling guilty about having the heating on, or opening a bottle of Baileys, and the decorations go up on Christmas eve and come down on 12th night.

You young 'uns make me smile..............You don't give a thought to the thousands of service folk who spent around five Christmasses, in trenches, tanks, bombers, fighter planes, submarines, fighting ships, jungles, German and Japanese Prisoner of War camps etc, etc.....or for the thousands who didn't make it home........You should have been a little kid like me during WWII ......No dad for over six years ...... Hard pressed mum with no money trying to feed us four kids on wartime rations.....with just a paper chain covered holly branch as a. Christmas tree.............You have the lot plus more besides and STILL you 'ain't happy.........HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!

I like Christmas day, it feels different and just a bit more special than other days. We are usually woken early by the kids, open presents etc and seeing the excitement on their faces. I go for a long run over the fells with my brother in the morning while my wife cooks dinner (she enjoys it), have dinner then spend rest of day with family and neighbours.

I like the time off work but really don't care for anything else about Christmas time.
