the calander on my PC must be wrong... it only says 3rd December
ya boo humbug... IMHO Christmas festivity's should be at (or nearer!) Christmas and not take up 1/10th of the year.
By the time Christmas has come, the tinsel will look tired, christmas lights will have blown and not have been replaced and the kids will be desensitised with seeing all the decorations... the 12 days of Christmas will then become interesting for 2 and the parents can't wait to get them down come January 6th (or earlier)
I MUST be the first to wish everyone a happy Easter!
