Its Christmas time

November 18th, 2005 / Filed Under: personal / 5 Comments / Tags: , , ,

Yesterday I saw the first Christmas advert of the year and today I saw several houseswith lights on the outside. The most annoying thing is that every shop we went into in the mall was playing Christmas music. I was under the impression that they wait until after Thanksgiving out here to start the Christmas stuff but that’s not until Thursday.

I’ve heard its getting a bit chilly out there now, the thermometer in the car today read 80 F and my face is a little burned from being outdoors all day working on Derek’s car. Not that I’m gloating or anything, it’s still getting dark by 5pm though.

Has anyone in England seen Christmas stuff out yet?

    Will there still be any needles left by Christmas day? I hope its not just brown branches covered in tinsel and lights by then!!

    I saw Xmas decorations in October…! I was at footy today and lost feeling in my feet. I don’t know how that’s better though…

    26 degrees in the middle of November! and we’re cutting thru the ice to get drinking water! Mind we have to do it before 4 o’clock as the sun sets then ’cause the Scottish children have to get to school in the daylight, and then we have to huddle up to each other ’cause the Yanks have all the oil, mump, mump, Bliar says it’ll be all right if we vote for him again instead of that scottish git Brown, so I have every confidence it’ll turn out grand!

    Haven’t really bought tree just yet, it’s quite appealing though, having a beautifully brown tree of twigs decorated with baubels and other christmas finery!

What's Your Take?
