    Same day as us. Going to take the bairns to Beamish to sing some carols, go skating and see Santa. Then back home to put the tree up with loads of kets.

    There's a tree up in shields on the new estate where the Northern bus depot used to be. I don't understand it, Xmas is shite, full of wankers getting too pissed, causing bother, pissing everyone off.

    Shove yer xmas and yer tree right up yer hoop

    Christmas is love, Christmas is peace. A time for hating and fighting to cease.

    I often hear people describe Christmas as 'forced happiness and I never understand it. Off work, drinking pretty much everyday, eating lush food and seeing friends and family. How the hell is it forced ?? It's class and people are happy cause it's class.

    I never understand this argument. You get two days bank holiday at xmas, any additional time is annual leave. I can do any of the above at any time of the year.

    I'd rather be off work, drink, see friends in the summer than when it's fucking miserable weather, always dark, cold and the same shite songs played over and over and over and over and over and over......

    We're all gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye.

    I seen a chistmas tree in a house window on the 6th November. Get bonfire night out of the way and it's the countdown to christmas in some houses.

    The least people can do is wait until after the 11th Nov - never seems right people selling poppies at the same time shops are blaring out - I wish it could be Christmas

    TBH, I think it's ridiculous putting decorations up this early. I understand why shops do it to get people spending, but in people's houses? Sad as owt. My missus puts the tree up at the start of December and I think even that's too early.

    That's what yule was invented for (before the christians renamed it). To brighten up those days at the darkest time of year. It's no coincidence it coincides with the shortest day of the year.
