For some timeless Christmas classics, I can't go by Christopher Bowes (of Alestorm).

Can we just start by assuming that everyone's favourite tune will already be on that list at least once, since no matter how dear and particular to you it may be, there's a fairly high probability that Mariah Carey will have at some point howled and yapped her way through a version of it..? :lol:

Except maybe this one...

Yesterday, MTV Classic became MTV Xmas. So it's now OFFICIALLY Christmas in my house!

I even recorded the start so I could see the logo appear in the corner.

Put the decorations up today, our 3 year old loved helping.

Disaster though, as I'd got everything out the loft, and I insist on having Home Alone on when were doing the Christmas stuff, and I'VE LOST MY DVD!! So I went on Sky Buy and Keep, so managed to have it on after all.

What he said.

First week of December isn't christmas either. You're all slaves to the hype of the commercial sector. You are their puppets. This puts you on Santa's Naughty List. Expect lumps of coal in your christmas stockings this year.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

For me, christmas doesn't start until school breaks up for the end of term. :P

My girlfriend is into the Ponies so I've been hunting down the the whole Beanie Baby My Little Pony Collection for her Xmas gift for the past 2 days. 5 of them were easy but it had to be one of her favs Twilight Sparkle (Because of her and friends that can be called "Bronies" I know all their bloody names. :lol: ) that was harder to find and I've been looking in different towns up and down Kent just for the 1 Pony. :lol: Luck would have it, the local toy stop that's been surviving in business even since I was a young child happened to have the last one. It put a smile of my face that a place that I used to visit all the time from my childhood would come full circle for me and my soulmate.

And no, I didnt care I was buying Ponies in public and it seems neither did the cashier staff that served me. :lol:

I bought a pony last week as a surprise for my granddaughter. What's to be worried about?
