    The Happy Xmas thread

    So Xmas is nearly upon us and with a recent spate of 'troubled' threads it would be nice to spread a bit of Xmas cheer.

    So whatever nation, ethnic background or religion you come from, its time to come together and have a happy Christmas time!

    Christmas is on the 25th December. Every year.

    It's not like Easter where it could happen at any time... so there's no excuse for all this early Christmas stuff!

    Dashing through the snow
    In a one horse open sleigh
    O'er the fields we go
    Laughing all the way
    Bells on bob tails ring
    Making spirits bright
    What fun it is to laugh and sing
    A sleighing song tonight

    Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh
    Jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh

    A day or two ago
    I thought I'd take a ride
    And soon Miss Fanny Bright
    Was seated by my side
    The horse was lean and lank
    Misfortune seemed his lot
    We got into a drifted bank
    And then we got upsot

    Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh
    Jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh yeah

    Jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh
    Jingle bells, jingle bells
    Jingle all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to ride
    In a one horse open sleigh

    Joking aside, I do try to ignore Christmas until the last two or three days. That way it actually feels like something special when you get there

    My family tend not to buy presents either, we just spend the day together. That takes the pressure out of it.

    The Christmas season begins on the Sunday nearest November 30th and runs through to January 6th.
    Christmas itself starts at sundown on December 24th and runs through to January 6th.

    So that gives us a bit more drining time
