I'm in work too. Why the fuck the CSA are open on Christmas eve I dont know. About 60 of us in our office today, and I heard the phone go about 4 times since I came in.
Yep I work in a training company, who's going to want to come in to do an English course on Christmas Eve? We've had one phone call all morning, usually it's dozens by now but i'm assuming job centres must be shut. What is the bloody point?

True, but then you've not listed "christmas eve drinks in the pub" as a potential alternative to both!

I enjoy Christmas and love seeing the kids excited. What I hate is my daughter having yet another little bug (throat infection and rash) that makes for sleepless nights and means she isn't herself. Got to do the logistics of filling their stockings while she is most likely up and about later too!

Brings out the worst in me.

Two much food, too much ale, too much running around after kids, too much time with members of the family who are the sort of people you'd never spend any time with if you weren't related. By about 6 o'clock in the evening I'm done with people. Just want to crash out in silence. I spent 45 minutes yesterday afternoon with 10 members of my dads side of the family as my nan discovered QV-fucking-C for the first time. If that's the holiday spirit then it needs fucking off into a shallow grave.

... and a happy new year.

It's just too much in too short a time. Needs dragging out over 3 or 4 days each. Not doing it twice in the space of two days.

Agree with that, I'm out visiting all day tomorrow, not looking forward to it at all. Spending time with family who you'd never spend any time with if you weren't related because you don't have anything in common with them at all. Making sure that we're back home by 5 at the latest though, just looking forward to the game now to be honest.

Saw an advert for a shoe store saying they have an early christmas offer on winter boots. €25 shoes for €10.

Its not even November FFS. Plus, I'm pretty sure its the 2018 shoes coming on sale before they stock up on the 2019 models and start overcharging us for it.

I've been sick of it since June, when I first started seeing Christmas related ads in magazines, papers etc. Then came the QVC-type TV channels doing 'Christmas in July' segments.  :no

Just go away, please. I don't even want to hear about it until the beginning of December, never mind have it rammed down my throat before I even go on my summer holiday.

I'm not religious at all. In fact, I really dislike religion, but even I get annoyed at how the meaning of Christmas has been perverted beyond all recognition. All it is now is one very long commercial greed-fest. So, pretty much everything it shouldn't be.

You can tell it's mid October when the expensive perfume ads start appearing on the telly.

Waste of money really. Don't they know most blokes buy from the counter with the best looking sales girl on? Mind you most blokes buy perfume when pissed so even that's subjective.

Ideally these ads should be viewed through beer goggles, week commencing 20th December.

They're sneaking them in earlier year by year, aren't they? If it weren't for Halloween, they'd be all over it. The Argos advert is basically a stealth Christmas advert, but they know it's too early to utter the word, so they just drop a nice little reminder in the background with the snow graphics.
