Constantly barraged with adverts and reminders of Christmas. There's still a month and a half left!
christmas is wonderful.
is lots around. i was in debenhams today getting a coffee and it was served with a star shaped christmas chocolate...why...and all the new toys were being put out...
It's just so overblown by the media, companies and the like.
i actually enjoy the coca cola adverts - they're how you can tell that christmas is ACTUALLY ON THE WAY instead of harrods' 'let's put decorations up in june' thing.
i don't watch much tv though, so i guess i could've missed what you're on about.
as long as you have your own ideas of what christmas is about, try not to let anything else affect them.
but all the christmas stuff coming too early makes it lose a bit of its magic.
if people are willing to buy christmas stuff at this ridiculous time, then that's fine by me.
and Halloween for a shop, I eat drink and breathe it all year round. I still love halloween though. Christmas was better when all the family made an effort to turn up and before they introduced the below £10 rule..
I fucking love Xmas
seems to be to get drunk with my uncles.
But even then I only seem them in about 1 out of 4 christmasses.
I hate it when it hits around 5pm, and everyone is stuffed full of food and very bored as telly is shit, the only time this didn't happen was 2 years ago when it started snowing loads.
As everyone grins at each other as they 'be nice' to one another for one day.
