    Yes no worries Marco and everyone. There are some very nice touches at christmas which bring a warmth to the heart.

    I think perhaps Im looking for a more understated celebration. Maybe less present waving and bringing it back from being too commercial. Maybe less decoration and I can do without the oldie Christmas tunes playing in the supermarket. I feel a slight groundhog day about it now.

    I just think its run away with itself for some of the wrong reasons

    Do we really need to have the same Christmas music every year? A nice meal with a good album playing in the other room.

    I wouldnt spoil it for others and I hope everyone does have a happy Christmas. Perhaps its because Ive done it 53 times now and I got more out of it as a kid

    No, I was having a word with the man upstairs about you earlier, and he said you're good for another 10 years yet, but your willy will drop off in 5!

    As always Martin , you write very much what I tend to think also !!(It saves me the typing )
    Having watched a few programmes about Christmas's in the 1940's and before , I would like to see us go back more to a Christmas build up a week before the big day and turn it off the day after the bank holiday after Boxing Day!
    My mate last week was going home to put the Christmas tree up , and I told him ,(as we passed a house burdening the National Grid with its weight of lights) that 'Folk like that need their fuse box removing '
    I dont think he was impressed
    I only ride 'em, I don't know what makes 'em work
