    Cheap Christmas Treats in January?

    Someone with their tree still up in February?

    A Christmas film on TV in the middle of March?

    Fairy lights for sale in April?

    Anything festive left lying around the house?

    If so, this is the thread for you! Come in and let us know if you've seen something magical and festive at any random time of the year.

    And photos of anything festive are always very welcome.

    All my outside decorations are drying in my front room 😂

    I'm not touching mine until they dry off, they can stay outside but turned off!

    I had a turkey, ham and cranberry sambo for lunch today, it doesn't get more Christmassy out of season than that haha.

    In fairness it's one of the greatest sambo combos ever.

    Bet you that's the new forum game, best sambo filling 😂

    close enough to my own festive fave for sandwich fillings... turkey, ham, stuffing and some mayo instead of cranberry (no butter for me either)

    I'll go one further - Turkey, ham, stuffing, cranberry + mayo and slices of brie.

    Currently looking out my home office window and making note of all the neighbour houses still with their outside lights on.... they're the real MVPs.

    Noticed last night when logging off that there's only one house visible from our house with external lights still up.

    went for a walk and I’m so surprised by the amount of houses still with lights and trees up and on. The ones directly near me all cleared theirs this morning but the greater neighbourhood are still rocking theirs.

    Got rid of tree yesterday to recycling, which was the last of the decorations jobs. Have decided to leave wreath on front door and lights on tree in front garden.

    My next door neighbour has these beautiful white lights on a tree in his back garden and as the tree is bare for winter it makes it look like snow.

    He switched them off last night, I was tempted to knock in and ask him to leave them on for at least the rest of winter.

    When we were at the Zoo lights, they had these amazing falling light effect lights in the trees. Would love to get them if I had a tree big enough.

    Christmas 2 U adverts on Virgin media at the moment.



  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 22,072 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Loughc


    just back from a walk and I am shocked/delighted to see so many trees and lights still up.

    I wonder do they know how much joy they bring by leaving them up during these dark dreary nights.

    I haven't taken my little tree and lights down yet. No harm in leaving it up for a while.

    Driving home this evening noticed 2 houses on our Road with their external lights up.

    Wife bought a Christmas tree yesterday in the Range, her brother admired the pencil tree in our hall and wanted one for his kitchen this year so she picked it up for him.

    Only 2 trees left on in my neighbourhood.

    one house was hiding theirs they other had it on full display and it’s easily one of the most beautiful tree I’ve ever seen. I totally get why they’d leave it up and lit.



  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 22,072 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Loughc


    Maybe it’s my neighbourhood but there are so many wreaths still up on the front doors.

    And they’re proper Christmas wreaths too.

    We took down our indoor stuff today but the outdoor lights and the door wreath are still in situ 😀.

    The house feels incredibly bare 😪
