    Happy Christmas to you all. Santa has just arrived for my daughters (19 and 24) so I’m getting ready to head to bed. Had a great evening, our neighbors called by and we had nice wine and a cheese board. Christmas Eve always makes me very emotional, remembering years gone by and those no longer here to celebrate with us. Take care and enjoy the day.

    Did anyone ever smell Santa’s scent in the living room on Christmas Morning after he came? You’d get the smell of the soot from the fire and that aroma would make you think he came.

    Errrrrr.......

    I almost never drink and I definitely wouldn't for doing Santa. It's the absolute best and most exciting night possible.

    Unlike my dad, who when I was 7 (and thats a long time ago) came home after working all day a littl worse for wear... doing the christmas stocking on myself and my brothers room while dressed as Santa, fell over and knocked himself out... lead to years of guilt on our part as we thought we had killed Santa,,,,(we didnt really we knew it was dad),,, but was always a good guilt trip at Christmas...even up until he died we laughed about it.

    At least he didn't try to surprise you by coming down the chimney. That leads to a very traumatic discovery of the truth about Santa Claus and lifelong hatred of Christmas.

    He's been here. My good deed for the day was to drop 6 x c batteries off to a house for a nerf gun Santa's leaving .

    So funny. Years ago I met “Santa” on the stairs when I woke up to go to the bathroom. He was the absolute image of my mom.

    Next year just get "Santa" to empty his sac into her. That will keep her happy

    Lack of photos coming in killed this years thread.
    But its nearly a Tradition now, so I will keep it awake if I can.
    Hopefully everyone had a safe and happy Christmas and until next time bye.

    how does it feel walking in to see the stuff just there and no surprise
    does it save loads of time not wrapping
    is it just for the kids you don't wrap or does everybody not get wrapped
    is it more environmentally friendly
    is it weird seeing presents being wrapped

    Its all a suprise,,, ok they have lists but also the knowledge that Santa usually gives more than the list and sometimes not quite the item they seen in a catalogue or online somewhere.

    There is quite a shock suprise for each one every year and its a pleasure to watch the two photos I posted above evolve.

    - nay - pressies from mam and dad, or aunties, uncles etc get wrapped by mere humans with paper and sellotape.

    But the Main Gift from Santa Claus is left gleaming in magnificent nakedness!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,122 ✭✭✭BeerWolf


    I get my niece to wrap the presents... :p

    Sorted for the kids but I’ve still got to face The Wrappening, for the relative’s presents, later on.

    The tide is turning…
