Happy Christmas by kazzzz on 23 October 2008 3:45am
Some lunatic in my street has a massive tree in his front yard covered in lights and lit up like a Christmas tree and that's because it IS a Christmas tree!

Hellooooooo!! It's only October!!

Duh! What a wacker. I haven't even carved my pumpkin yet.

In Rovaniemi there's this house, and they have had Christmas tree on the front yard all year!

Dare I say this... I sang Christmas songs yesterday. And I had Christmas cookies last weekend. And I already put money save for my Christmas present. I always start early. This year particularly, since I go home at Christmas and I have homesickness.

Well, northern Finland is the home of Santa, so you're allowed too ;)

I read somewhere of a man in UK who was addicted to Christmas - he had Christmas dinner every day.

I have quite a few things purchased. Do that all year long. I also have wrapped things, but not all yet.

Actually I have a confession to make I have had blue tinsel along my front handrail for two years. It's actually coz all the units here look the same and it makes it easier to find us. That's my excuse anyway.

I sympathise, Elina. And it must be so DARK for you at the moment?

Our clocks go back 1 hour this coming Saturday. It will make the shops even more anxious to put their Christmas displays on (although, now we are officially recession-hit, I bet there aren't so many houses fulsomely lit with Santas, reindeer, etc. outside their houses.) Think I'll start a thread.

Oh, you don't know our family!! We'll be lit up like always, full throttle! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Heck, it's CHRISTMAS! It's tasteful, too and we won't be cutting back. Maybe turn the lights off an hour earlier though.
