100 days to Christmas - Which date though

    / Aside / First time posting on this forum, woo.

    And shouldn't there be a Christmas smilie?

    So is September 16th 100 days to Christmas or is it September 15th?

    Using the it says there are 111 full days and 11 hours as of today. That would make September 15th the 100 days until Christmas mark.

    If we use one of the calculators and add 100 days to September 16th, we get December 25th:

    I ask because I want to go overboard and annoy as many people I can on the day that is correctly the one with 100 days to go. Any help, is appreciated.

    Welcome damien. :)

    September 16th.

    Otherwise Christmas eve is 'zero days' to Christmas, which makes no sense.

    We have our own countdown to the big day here at the top of the forum which is currently accurate.

    My mum, who i share birthdays with always told me our birthday are 100 days from Christmas Day so September 16th it is.

    I jokingly mentioned it was 90 days till Christmas to someone today. Checked in to the countdown thread only to end up feeling a little disappointed that it was actually 110.

    Then it occurred to me that while it might be 110 to Christmas day, the excitement and Christmas feeling really starts when I put up the decorations and thats end of November.

    So while technically its 110 days till 'Christmas Day' its actually only 80 days till 'Christmas Time' when you think about it.

    Once Halloween has passed it really kicks in, dark evenings and the fires lighting.
