Re: Xmas

I have it on good authority that people who put decorations up before December 1st get coal for Christmas.

Re: Xmas

Coal would be fine, better that socks again not had the old fireplace lit for a few years now.

I Remember my Gran bringing a bit of coal in at new year when first footing. No idea why, must try and find out!

Re: Xmas

I am pretty much a fully signed up scrooge, not a big fan of christmas. I delay the decoration for as long as possible. The wife is currently wanting to buy an upside down black tree, I just dont understand..........

Re: Xmas

I've seen a few of those upside down trees in John Lewis, awful! Keep them away from your house!

I'm not a fan of the shops continual flogging of Christmas, I do enjoy the generic run up, mince pies, mulled wine and all that.
