Misleading headline typical of the tabloids...

So once the redtop rag words have been washed aside, it's basically that Mars will be making a temporary retro version of Snickers sold as Marathon bars in 4-packs for £1 and only available at Morrisons, pretty anti-climactic really... Funny

Not only in 4-packs for a £1 but they are each twice the size of the old ones.

You just couldn't make it it up. Oh hang on, I just did. 

So how many weeks to Christmas is it?

Re: How nutty is that ? ? ?

judging by the amount of Christmas stuff in supermarkets, I'd say about a week until Christmas.

Yep, I've seen the christmas stuff on the shelves already at the local tesco, in September, months before it should even be thought about... Crazy2

Might as well leave it there all year along with the decorations, think of all the time it would save.

With the amount of parcels some households get every day from amazon it must be like christmas every day.

Cheesy

@gleneagles 

Our local Council leave them up now, as have a few houses I've seen and is it just me, or do the blue LED lights not last as long as the others? 

Latest fad if I can call it that are those lazer lights thingies scanned across the entire front of the house. Not for me, but one of my daugthers had one last year.

Nearly time to order our soya tofu Turkey? Not in our house, that's for sure.

They drive them hard so they're nice and stupid bright, so they tend to fail sooner than if they just lowered the current enough to not burn them out, same goes for white LED lights, as they use blue chips under phosphor doped gel/silicone, overdrive them and they get too hot and the bond wires break off, resulting in flickery annoyances...
