Is it Christmas now?

Just got back from shopping and as I'm walking down our little street I find that 4 are totally decorated up for Christmas...yes...including lights, trees and even Christmas wreaths on the doors. Christmas? 3 weeks into November? Bit early for me but whatever lights your candles.  Undecided

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

No, it's not christmas, it' snot gotten to the 12 days of christmas, so there is no christmas yet...

 

And besides, the winter solstice is more of a reason to celebrate...Crazy

@Pete11

National shortbread Day sounds good.

 

I chose the 6th as, traditionally, the decorations should be down by then.

Or you could start the whole 'festive season' again by celebrating Russian Orthodox Christmas Eve on the 6th January and Christmas Day on the 7th.

We've chosen our Christmas tree... it is still in the ground and "growing"

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.
