    Based on a conversation in the chat thread I am interested to know the demographics of the Christmas obsessed portion of the boards community!

    I am 37. :)

    The vast majority of us are 36-49!

    I wonder if there's a correlation between our stage of life and our undying love for all things Christmas nostalgia???

    Life starts to get a bit more 'serious' the older you get, you spend more and more time worrying about work, bills, kids etc that I think you need more escapism. I definitely daydream more then I use to and find this forum a great way to forget about things for a bit and remember some of the happiest times of my childhood. To share that with like minded people is a Brucey bonus :)

    I'm very guilty of this. Have found working in isolation the last few weeks I've managed to get a huge amount of work done but in between have been delving into older threads here as a way to pick up the spirits etc. There's other christmas website I look at also and have to admit I've been looking in on these way more at the moment than I normally would at this time of year. I reckon this just reinforces that Christmas is my go-to subject when in need of a boost or to soften a low point etc.

    I believe we all become a bit 'ageless' at Christmas, it's brings out the inner child that is hiding in all of us :D
