Had thought about hiring local village hall just for Xmas day and declaring it a christmas free zone. Not sure what we would do though. Then I thought if i want to be miserable i might just join the JWs

Not being a great fan of Christmas madness, usually everything is last minute.
Yesterday a group of us went carol singing at a residential home.
Those poor lost souls , lost in their minds, don't really have christmas anymore. Families far away, and only memories,i.e. the small bits they can remember.
So I came home and gave myself and family a kick up the backside, deciding we should be far more positive before it's far too late!

Visiting residential homes and carol singing is to be lauded and I don't object to the ones knocking on the door nearer to Christmas, It just seemed way too early to me.

Yes Salmon, it is a bit too early to be knocking on doors, agreed.

What's known as a captive audience, Granny laugh

This Christmas I am going away on five day break to Coventry. It's a variation on the theme'Sent to Coventry'

Divorced people get tired of being a 'spare part' and possibly on their own on Christmas Day,
I dread it comimg around and I am a Christian.

Candlyfloss...I do wish you a Merry Christmas ( your xmas ) If you don't want to overspend, don't. Don't tighten your belt too much, think of your fellow man.

Hello Sandshoes, how are you doing? Have you got carol singers out over there yet and what about the snow, does that hinder them a bit?

Whats todays temperature? Can we have a daily reading on another topic please?

Hope you enjoy Pax.....sounds a splendid idea , just wish more of us could escape. No,no,no, didn't mean that, got to be positive!

Hi Gran......for some unknown reason we don't have carolers here.
Maybe I should take a trip down memory lane and go house to house singing. Then again, maybe not!

ps...cozzy weather here today -2C. Calgary had a 2 day blizzard this week, they had to cancel a flight wink Apologies for off topic.
