Trees 🌲 are for life not just for Christmas, too much eating and drinking and getting into the overdraft, it only comes once a year........Once too many in my and others opinion.

Quite right @swamppig I think a lot of people these days submit to peer pressure and then end up maxing the credit cards. We have a very frugal time compared to many, I am happy with a home made gift, or a book from a charity shop, something like that. The true spirit of Christmas I think, has long gone

Come and sit in my corner.  I have refused an invitation to a family get together and will spend it on my own.  Suits me fine.

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves.

Oh it's just another thing to to make life have a little more purpose and another great excuse for making money out of us  yes

 

However .

 

I just enjoy the atmosphere, it was a little boring in Spain a few years back but they're catching up now and it's definitely a better atmosphere in the shops, now they've started cashing in on it.

You don't have to spend
