Happy Christmas!

Yesterday in my local Tesco I saw on the shelves the 'Haribo Christmas Selection'.

On that note may I be the first to wish all AWEB members a very merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!

And we're off! I won't be talking about Christmas, but I am pleased that you have wished me a happy one since I won't actually be here come Christmas, so thanks :)

Your store is slow.

A neighbour works in the local Tescos, and told me that last year they began receiving deliveries of Easter eggs in November.

...had their Christmas displays up right at the end of July - for the benefit of the overseas visitors apparently!

I thought I might cook my turkey next weekend and get it over and done with. Maybe someone will bring out a 6 month advent calendar so we can countdown properly...

You'd make a fortune from everyone who needs an excuse for chocolate!

I think you may have just won our unofficial "first sighting of Christmas" competition.

The prize? Why a Haribo Christmas selection bag, of course! ;-)

Time to get the sprouts on or they will be all hard and bitter otherwise.

Don't forget the cake

My mother tells me that good Christmas cake should be made months before! I wouldn't know how true this is because I don't eat the stuff!

Surprised

Hi 

I am surprised as most of the supermarkets start stocking Halloween stuff straight after the summer season barbecues in Scotland anyway and the minute Halloween it finished 1st Nov the christmas stuff.  I love buying Halloween stuff every year .  We light up are whole house with Halloween stuff . The Kids love it .  Had seventy kids last year brillant fun.  Way to much going on before then .  It must just be that tesco  mind you tesco would do anything.

Anyway I sure it will be a great Christmas have a good one Becky .  You should make your Christmas cake July to August , the whiskey gives it a lovely flavour the longer the cake is made the nicer it is .
