Christmas is coming....

My missus has started the yearly ritual of decorating the house..... and believe me, when I say "decorating the house", I don`t mean with "boughs of holly"...
When she has finished, the whole house looks like santa`s grotto gone mad, !... but it does look wonderful.....
Anyone else got pics of their decorations?

Re: Christmas is coming....

Does your 'special' wardrobe get done too, or is that off limits?

Re: Christmas is coming....

I'm only going to allow myself to start thinking about and dealing with Christmas on Sunday, as that's when advent begins.

We've had one TV commercial advertising 'buy now for Christmas' for the past 4 weeks.  Spoils the occasion I think.

Re: Christmas is coming....

Advent begins tomorrow so that is when preparation for Christmas should also begin.  I don't actually put my little tree up until about a week before the Day............ and I prefer minimalist decoration rather than overloading the place.
Having said that - have two Christmas Fairs to visit today!

Oh no, not again!
I like Christmas although less now the kid are grown up. For me Christmas begins on Christmas Eve, and finishes on Boxing Day. Anything else before or after I ignore as commercialised bollocks

Re: Christmas is coming....

I could cope with Christmas if there wasn't so much overkill. Been shopping this morning and it is just everywhere - totally commercial and 'in your face' so to speak.
My friend has just returned from visiting her friend who is domiciled in Spain and she says it is wonderful - none of the hype that we have here.
What a nice change and all the more surprising as it is a Catholic country. The season here as nothing to do with Christianity - just a consumer-fest.
