The only shock, by implication, is that some people in Hull have curtains.... and windows.

In the first week of September our local garden centre started putting Christmas decorations out.  Went in there yesterday and they have about a quarter of their inside store full of Christmas lights, trees, decorations, toys,  etc all set out.

When you've got kids sadly there is always a draw to start the build up earlier and earlier, personally though, in our house halloween is seen as more fun than christmas. Maybe its because I'm a humanist or maybe thats because we end up spending most of the christmas holiday trying to please both sides of the family. Having 3 kids you'd think someone would say, I know lets go to them this year, or better yet, lets just send them a card and not emotionally blackmail them to come over for a visit, but sadly no!

Halloween by contrast is a family fun day where we all bake cookies (one of the few days I always book off work if its not at the weekend) for the trick or treaters and spookify as much of the house as possible.

I was actually passing through Wakefield at the time. 

 

At least all the other houses in the street had the good sense to board up their windows. Must have been chilly in that particular house.

An outrageous lie.

Btw I nipped to Stratford upon Avon yesterday, they had their Christmas lights up all round town. I guess this is as you like it?

Plenty of work there for wandering minstrels I'll warrant.

I generally don't tour, with my band, at the weekends. Busy week coming up though, four countries, four gigs. Four capital cities.

There are already TV adverts on for Christmas 2014.  Those savings schemes where you give them your money for a year, they give you that money back, without interest, in vouchers that you can only spend on full-priced or over-priced stores all while you're hoping they don't go bust not long after a massive profit dividend to shareholders.
