Do you know just who you want to send cards to or do you wait until one pops through the door so you can then reciprocate? Would this not be a shallow action? I know exactly who is on my list and they all get one regardless of their ever sending me one.

Christmas Eve boxes
5 Posts Last Activity 10/12/2016View
What do you think of the craze for Christmas Eve boxes. Apparently the idea is you give a box to a child to settle them ready for Christmas day. Items to include pyjamas, bubble bath, a family game and a seasonal book. My children would have received these gifts in their Christmas stocking. Is it consumerism gone mad. What next the day before Christmas Eve boxes? My family unfortunately will have to put up with tracking Santa, singing carols and watching a seasonal film

What do you think about the Christmas ads this year ? Do you have a favourite ? I personally loved Sainsburys last year.

Now that my children and even my grandchildren have grown up Christmas has stopped being exciting just an expensive chore, don't mean to sound all ba humbug it used to be my favourite time of year when there were little ones around. My husband suggested we go away over the Christmas period this year and I would look forward to this if I could find somewhere to go which is a dog friendly hotel, as I want it all cooked for me as I have done it for the past 40 years please could anyone give me any ideas My dog is an 8 yr old westie I live in South Wales but I am willing to travel

How is it that school nativity plays exclude Jewish children when the central character is one. All those fair-haired wise men etc. mmmmm.

Has the magic of Christmas diminished?

Oh joy! The shops are gearing up for Christmas; the cards & decorations are out even Christmas music is in one shop. The build up to Christmas has been ruined - it used to be magical when my children were young. What do you think? Do you feel the same?
