Come December and 32 KW of lights go up outside the front of the factory. You can probably see it from space

Re: Christmas.

I like xmas. I get two weeks off work to eat and drink myself stupid. The kids are all busy breaking their new toys, the wife never gets out of the kitchen, and i am free to watch what ever i want on tv.

Good times.

Re: Christmas.

Sainsbury's started selling Christmas cakes and Yule logs a couple of weeks ago

I love Christmas but at Christmas not just after the summer holidays have finished

Re: Christmas.

I was working at Boots the other day when the suncreams and bikinis all went back into the stockroom, and the Christmas 3 for 2 selection came out to take their places..

You work in Boots Pud?

I hate Christmas the sooner its here the sooner its done with. If they wanted me in at work I would be there the roads will be dead. The only day our depo closes is Xmas day, I worked Xmas Eve last year got delayed up in Deryshire with 7 other drivers. It was about 23.00 and we all needed to be unloaded I was next but I let the others go first and get done because they have famlies. Not everyone is as miserable as me.
