Yup, kids will all be back at school soon and the next financial burden (presuming you've recovered from last years) is Xmas.

What's your favourite Xmas song?

This isn't very traditional and a bit dark, but it makes me think of Xmas.

I used to really like Slade - Merry Christmas Everybody, I always felt that had a real fun, feel-good party thing going on....but having heard it now for years starting at the end of October in shops, I can barely thole it, or any other of the christmas songs anymore.

I suppose the one which is listenable whatever the season and I still enjoy is the Pogues and Kirsty McCall, Fairytale of New York.

I can remember hearing this incessantly one Christmas. Wouldn't have minded but I was in bloody India at the time.

Did you know that Xmas wasn't really celebrated in Scotland until the 40's and the big event was Ne'erday (New years day).

So it's quite apt that you post Cliff Richards song to the tune of 'Auld Lang Syne', for me anyway.

I think Christmas Day was only made public holiday here in the seventies.

My dad used to go to school on christmas day - and never had a christmas tree as a child ( although there are other west of scotland reasons for that too)

the afternoon of 31st December used to be the big wedding day - everything closes early, the 1st and 2nd are days off , so you could get a bit of a honeymoon, or just carry on partying.

I wonder if you could get married on christmas day nowadays? The registry offices would be closed, but I suppose the churches are open and the ministers are working!

yeah, my grandparents could never get used to the idea of a christmas tree - and never had one. And they questioned why we ( my parents) put one up.

Mind you, it only went up around Christmas Eve and came down again pretty sharp after Ne'er Day.
