Isn’t Christmas a little overblown. If it wasn’t for the barrage of advertising from retailers it would fade away as another religious festival. Let’s be honest, of all those angry people demanding their Christmas, how many even step inside a church? 

Not forgetting that 25th December is an arbitrary date? Christmas could be celebrated on any day? Why not move it to the summer? :D

It was only an idea? :unsure: Maybe fill in the long gap between Easter and bonfire night to give retailers something to promote other than just holidays! :D

If anyone wants a laugh at Christmas try watching this


Probably one of the funniest Scottish comedy’s. Hopefully the English get the humour in it.

Haven't enjoyed Christmas since the kids got older. Don't like the shopping queues and excessive commercialism.   In recent years we have usually spent December and January enjoying beaches around SE Asia while my business partner keeps things ticking over in the UK.  I've got properties overseas that we haven't visited since March and of course we're stuck in the UK for Christmas due to Covid and its just so bloody grim! Cold, dark, wet and not many sales ATM to break the tedium. Service side is steady though.  Hopefully we can get away late Spring - I'll probably have to vaccinate to be able to travel, so I'll be taking a dose even if it turns me into a half-man half-mole hybrid.

That’s ridiculous! Every knows the vaccine contains mind control nanobots! It’s common knowledge!

Apparently they’ve discovered a new strain of corona that spreads much faster so you could be right! 

But hey, we’ll still be trading because Zombies drive right, I think I even have proof!:D
