    It's not like you to be so argumentative. Maybe you don't like the christmas spirit at all.
    As for the relegation, I think it won't be until February at the earliest.

    I'm actually with you on the Christmas lights thing, tbh. The Golf shop on the Great North Road had a billion lights and a big fuck off tree last week, man!!

    Oh and, I don't think they'll go down, unfortunately.

    Fully with you on the lights thing as well.

    Really ****s me off when i see people putting them up already, or the shop decorations etc.

    There is one house near me that does a brilliant halloween set of lights then Xmas up straight after - it's beginning of November for Christ sake.

    It's been Christmas here (Canada) for a couple of weeks now, what drives me crazy is not so much the lights but the mind numbing Christmas music in the stores, think I'd do myself in if I had to work in them all day. Two weeks before Christmas is acceptable. Funny thing is, over here come Boxing day everybody dumps their "live" Christmas trees at the street for the garbage men to pick up. What ever happened to the 12 days of Christmas ?

    eeh I know. December the 1st - the very bestest day of the whole year

    ps my lights are going up a day late this year - because our area is having an advent window trail. and our house is number 2

    so 2nd december it is !!

    Do you follow it with Gnome Alone or an episode of Red Dwarf? Maybe a horror-Children of the (Lepra) Corn? All while goblin some popcorn?

    Sorry...this is a bad hobbit I've got.

    As soon as possible personally.

    I popped into Asda at Gateshead after work yesterday and they were selling real Christmas trees.They will look a sorry state on the 25th Dec..

    My local Co- op store always has a display and stock of Cadburys cream and mini eggs the day it opens after Christmas.Roll on the day.
