    Make it every 10 - or better still every millenium.
  • I love Christmas, but it starts so early that by the time the big day arrives, I'm getting a little bit fed up of it all.
  • Christmas shouldn't start in the shops until the first full week of December & on TV the week before Christmas day.

    I love Christmas. However, so do shops and they start selling christmas stuff way too early. I prefered it when shops didn't start selling stuff until late November, now its soon as Halloweeen has finsihed, if not before. Christmas stock, advertising etc should only be on sale from the start of november at the earliest, if not later.

    No doubt in January we'll start seeing Easter Eggs...
  • It seems that a lot of people have lost the plot on what Christmas is really all about. It seems that people are only interested in keeping up with "The Jones" on the pressie stakes, would rather compare who got what and how much was spent

    I'm not in the least bit religious, but it should really just be about celebrating the birth of "him upstairs".........

    Roll on boxing day when we'll get the adverts on the TV for summer holidays!

    Ho hum........
  • I voted for "B"

    I love Christmas:j :j :j

    but..do think it does start a bit early in the shops and on the TV.
  • I love Christmas, it's my favourite time of year. But this year we had an unexpected house move (long story, blame the landlords) in October which cleaned out my Christmas fund and a whole lots more besides, so this year I'd like to pass on Christmas. I don't have any money, I can just about cobble a Christmas dinner (but it isn't turkey, so the kids will grumble :rolleyes: ), and I've made pressies but can't afford to post them. So I'd like Christmas to be next year, please, I might be prepared by then!
