The Deathlist Christmas Special!

Recommended Posts

Are you sick of Christmas already? What do you think of Christmas stuff appearing in the shops in October? Anything Christmas-related that you'd like to have a good rant about?

 

Do you believe in Santa Claus?

No.

 

Don't care - just ignore it. I buy what I want to, thanks very much.

 

Not really. It's a good excuse for a few days off work, to eat and drink too much and argue with the family.

 

No. He doesn't need believing in, he just IS.

Yes.

 

Unhappy about it.

 

"Christmas" music, aka any old bloody music that's lying around, with the delightful "ching ching ching" sound of sleigh bells added. That sound, specifically, actually raises my pulse rate and not in a good way. rant rant rant rant rant. Bloody Christmas music. rant. Aaaggh. Sleigh Bells. AaAaagh...

 

No, I don't believe in Santa. Nor does Charley Farley. But then, he doesn't believe in "Innocent Until Proven Guilty" or "Right To Legal Counsel" or "Right To Know The Charges Against You" or other such minor inconveniences like that, either. rant rant rant. He probably has sleigh bells as the ringtone on his mobile. rant.

An excellent and incisive rant.

At what age do we stop loving Christmas and start hating it? I remember as a kid being so excited I couldn't sleep on Christmas Eve. How my Dad, I mean Santa, I mean Father Christmas, managed to sneak past my room and pile the presents up under the tree I'll never know.

 

Now, it's just three days of wrapping presents that people already know they're getting, getting crappy gifts that you'd never want, visits round to relatives no one likes, and eating far too much mediocre food. Fruit cake is supposed to be a treat?

Cowboy Ronnie it seems your spirit of Christmas or more

the less your heart has shrunken smaller then even

the grinches own.

 

It seems a couple of bad holiday seasons drove

you into thinking this way. On my Christmas i usually

see the whole big faimly and there is food ordered and

food cooked which overall it is quite tasty.

 

As for gifts - Honestly i usually receive better then i give. :(

 

Then one of the best parts is watching my grandfather

who is in his mid 80's get drunk off numerous glasses

of whisky and smoke his holiday cigar.

 

"Good thread Lady Die" - You beat me to it.

Christmas is a good time for celebs to croak it. I can remember Bob Monkhouse, Alan Bates and Jason Robards all went in that period. And didn't Charlie Chaplin hang up his moustache on the big day in 1977?

So maybe there's hope that one of the list might go in the holiday period. Brooke Astor bestowing one last philanthropic gift perhaps?

When it starts costing time, effort and money over and above the normal day to day outgoings.

Perhaps you should change the title of this thread to, "Winter Holiday", Lady Die.

 

Although people of non-Christian faiths may have no problem with it, it might offend a white, middle-class, lefty graduate who's been on too many equality and diversity courses wthout ever actually speaking to to somebody from a minority group.

Indeed, monarchists and royalists alike have the Queen's speech to look forward to. :old:

 

I'm not amused with Channel 4's alternative Christmas message.

If only Cliff Richard could drop dead at Christmas.

 

Now that would bring tears of joy to my cynical eyes.

Personally I hope he outlives me. :old: Think of the tributes, re-releases, interminable playings of Mistletoe and Wine and all those other songs whose titles escape me for the moment.

 

If you think Christmas is bad now, just imagine!!
