I like Christmas.............since I was knee high to a grasshopper I've loved the occasion, I ignore all the hype and the commercial side of it, if people want to be miserable and moaning about it all....I say let em, one thing Brits are No 1 in the world at it's being NEGATIVE about almost everything.........SadSadSadSadSad

This is our festival and nobody is going to spoil it for us............we have our Christmas tree up and the lights are shining brightly..........so there.......TongueTongueTongue

So peeps enjoy whatever it is you will be doing on Christmas morning or should I say Christmas moaning.........I'll be out with my camera gear enjoying myself with the birds......at least they don't moan or complain (apart form the Starlings) TongueTongue

Cheer up for gods sake...........we're a long time dead........

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year To All

Longer.

Typo?

I think he does mean shorter, isn't the longest night around the 21st and from then on they get shorter and the days get longer as we head towards Spring. Roll on Spring ffs.

Nope. Days get longer as we pass the solstice and move into Spring. Nights get shorter.

No typo.

OK, I know the solstice is on 22-Dec but once Christmas is out of the way it is a clear run.

I'll be merry in one month's time.

It takes a whole year's grumpiness to save up for one weeks merriment.

well, I'm not reading all that thread, but I do think the latter part of November is time to start thinking about Christmas.
the cold and gloom are setting in and we need something to take our minds off it.

Solstice, Christmas, whatever, go for it.


(The garden centre filling up with christmas decorations in september/october when its still bulb planting time is just too silly but it seems to be what most people want. As one old man there said "people's different now" )

Last Christmas, I spent most days down on Freemans Marsh photographing the birds (including a glossy ibis) and forgetting about work. Didn't listen to any music Smile
I love the dark nights, snow (for a day, if we're lucky), present, decorations (within reason!), time off work, seeing family, drinking Baileys Smile

I just think this is going too far:

This guy was on the corner of a cul-de-sac in Kilgetty. Eventually, the whole cul-de-sac was like this, except one house that remaining pitch black Smile

I live in a bubble, a bubble where Xmas arrives around the 23rd of December when I head to the folks - it's great.

If you listen to Radio 4 and watch BBC4, you get no Xmas songs and no xmas adverts

It's the only solution.

Oh, and shop online

do all that, and Xmas becomes special again - I still enjoy it hugely

Even though it's the most stressful time of year, it always ends up being huge fun.Grin
