    I can't wait for thick black tights season to begin. :D

    Speaking of winter clothes, this popped up on Twitter today.

    I look like a Woman's Way junkie but I only followed them on Twitter last week to enter a competition and they seem to be a bit Christmas mad this week. :D Definitely a sign that Christmas is coming!

    I've seen a few restaurants on FB mentioning Christmas party packages and a hotel is advertising 10% off gift vouchers with the code christmasinjuly. They've put up a photo of Santa in their spa. :D Finally other people are beginning to think about Christmas!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,737 Glitzgirl


    I know it's an odd one but I always think we're getting to close to halloween / christmas season when I see Argos have their 3 for 2 sale on toys ! It's a natural sign to start shopping !

    When summer is here it feels like Christmas is just around the corner.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,483 Hollister11


    When you wake up on Sunday, it's lashing rain, and your dad has the fire lighting.

    More like when the summer here reminds you of a winter's Sunday Morning!

    Yeah, it looks like November outside my window!

    Was reading one of the threads here this morning about Christmas fm so installed the app again. Put it on and my 3 year old asked what it was and I explained it was Christmas music, que her breaking into a rendition of jingle bells! She then started to tell me all about Christmas, which given that she was only 2 1/2 last year is great, I think I may have created another Christmas nut!

    I wasn't the only one so! :D

    Anyone remember in 2007 I think, Christmas ads on the radio in April :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I am completely Christmas MAD -
    but I usually try to at least wait till September before looking for signs...

    HOWEVER - I have been missing of the countdown for quite a while as I have a new little nephew (all well but helping out a new Mammy).... and my sister cooked his christening cake last night in my house.... AND THE SMELL... was pure Christmas! :-)

    Selfridges has opened its Christmas shop.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,322 ✭✭✭ Day Lewin


    Its cold. Weather chilly and autumnal, thinking about firewood, kindling, logs.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,483 Hollister11


    My dad works in garden construction, so he has access to loads of waste timbers.

    He built a log store last year, and is filling it up by the week, so we have loads of free fuel by the winter. ( or for the next month) :D
