I would like to apologies to any member in the uk who find their lights dip every 5 seconds this evening until the new year,my wife has managed to purchase and put up the whole uk stock of xmas lights,its like living in a department store grotto!

My electricity bill is going to go through the roof,I have offered the idea that I could fix a dynamo to her excersise bike and she could peddle until new year,its not been one of my better idea's though as she is now sulking..

Is it not a bit early to be putting up lights?

I saw some a week ago and if it keeps on like this Crimbo is going to start on the 26th of Dec.... it is getting a bit silly.

Our outside tree will be going up the 2nd week of December. The inside one probably a week later.

I hear that some of those nice LED Christmas scenes have infra red LEDs in them that make the pictures a bit rude when viewed by a digital camera! :)
A throwaway idea for a bit of mischief :grouphug:

I was thinking along the lines of a single home-made beeswax candle on Christmas Eve, then taking a leaf out of Hancock's book, and retiring to bed early with my copy of "Bleak House":)

I meant 26th December in that if they get any earlier they will be starting the day after the day.... sarcastic yes but it is getting utterly b***dy silly.

What next the New Year Sales starting in November? Bonfire night in June?

At least we winna have swarming in December... oops what just went past the window??
