Rudolph Day

As some of you may or may not know, Christmas Enthusiasts like ourselves celebrate a little bit of Christmas on the 25th of each month outside of December and they call that day each month, Rudolph Day.

I think it's a great idea and not something I've stuck to myself but I'm going to try my best to stick to it this year, so why not plan ideas for it here.

I'm thinking one month you could watch a Christmas Movie on the 25th, wear Christmas socks to work, make a festive treat for yourself, and dare I say could we even finally get a Forum Meet Up to happen on a 25th?

Also March 25th is Waffle Day so that's that one already sorted!

So share your thoughts, ideas and pics of what you will do for Rudolph Day(s) in 2018.

Love this idea! I’m definitely going to cook turkey for dinner in February when the 25th falls at the weekend. Just a turkey drumstick! Not an actual turkey.

I’m going to go look up ideas now.

The 25th of January is Burns Night, the brightest note in a dull month and something to look forward to, for when Christmas is over.

I'll put a reminder into my phone for it!

Do what ye all think, Jan 25th will we make it Christmas Socks day?

And we can all post up pics of our socks that day, for the office folk we can use the excuse the Christmas ones were accidentally left in rotation haha.

Not long to go until the first Rudolph Day of the year! I'm not going to lie, I've had to actively avoid all the Christmas socks in the drawer in anticipation!

I am shocked to note that I do not own a pair of Christmas socks. So it's Christmas jocks for me and they will not be shown off around the office but I will know.

Think I'll partake in Rudolph day this year. The crimbo socks I discussed in another thread shall be worn on the 25th of each month from now on rather than keeping them up for 11 months. A token gesture perhaps but hey, its the little things!

Great idea I wondered what Rudolph day was when I heard it mentioned before
I don’t own Christmas socks 😢
I’ll see if there are any floating around in Heatons sale
