I hate Christmas. Bloody Christian's with their pagan traditions and consumerism.

    It's time off. And more booze.

    You're not alone. It's forced time off work at the worst time of year and the pressure to spend, spend, spend gets worse every year.

    I'd love to work over Xmas and save the holiday for summer.
    If it was in February I could at least go off to the Alps for some ice climbing.

    Ask yourself, what would Jesus do?
    He'd get wasted to celebrate his birthday. He'd also celebrate it on the actual anniversary of his birth (if he existed) Which according to the Bible was in about June.

    I don't like the enforced enjoyment. You have to be happy because it's Christmas. B011cks, I'll be grumpy if I want.
    I'll take the excuse to drink beer though. I've got two kegs of Funky Monkey to get through.

    Could have been September that's when taxes were collected after harvesting.

    Jesus seems so important to some people but bugger all is known about him.

    The latter. The Maxxis bunch will take the strain next month when I go to BPW.

    Xmas - I don't mind it - time with the kids when they are excited about it, work or no work, crappy weather and when all is said and done it has a morning, an afternoon and an evening - just another day too!

    I'm off round the forest now. Seasons greetings!
    ...take your pickelf on your holibobs.... :D

    jeez :roll:
