I'll use that excuse next time I get caught poaching, 'I was just thinning out the trout Guv, honest'. :wink:

Sorry . but I really don't get it . I mean I like decorations and parties and stuff , but it doesn't actually mean anything to me . In theory its celebrating the birth 0f Christ , but apart from the fact that they switched the date to 'steal' a pagan festival day , most people have been swayed by commercial pressures to give 'presents' that of course have nothing to do with chistmas . I mean if you want to give somebody a present , great , fine , but why pretend that you need some excuse to give it .For me Xmas is a commercial pile of dross , that I would rather went away . Tim .

Hey Simonita ---not grumpy--just honest

Freida loves Royal weddings... I just fancy the Royal bride.. :lol: :lol:

At Xmas I don't like the commercialism -- at New Year I love the joviality and enjoyment and fireworks...plus it's an honest celebration to wish people all the best for the coming year. Not full of historic religious ideas and a pretence to believe in that....

So still lighthearted and hope to get a prezzie as well...but Banshee says she can't make it... :cry:

Simonita & Fredatinch , i don't want to be grumpy , I'm very happy to be cheerful , I just don't feel the need for some false reason to be so . Xmas got hijacked many years ago , since when its only been about selling loads of rubbish for people who can ill afford to buy it , to give to family and friends who don't really want it , but pretend that they do so as not to offend . Tim .

Ah Christmas

It's a time when you get time off work, time to spend with friends and family, a small gift or five if you are lucky and a time to indulge in the very best food, wine and a little something special in a brandy snifter.

The shortest days are behind us and we look forward to the spring and another year on this good earth.

Enjoy it you miserable bastards, you never know it might be your last one, then how silly would you look with your humbuggery.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you all.

Fred.

Yep - it's a shortened version of the pan-Slavic name "говно" :oops: :lol:
