Re: It's almost Christmas!

Well I'll take your word for it - but in my 39 years in the UK, in many locations- I don't know of a single family with real candles on their tree in UK. And all friends, neighbours and colleagues were aghast at the idea... Which is why the girls felt it was so so special.

We opened main presents when tree was lit on 24th- but always kept some for stockings on 25th morning- and mince pies and whisky for FC, of course.

McTAVGE- for Christmas, I want to swap- get rid of November and have 2 Octobers, or 2 Junes instead. Please. When little Emma meets her maker (she is on top form and was 14 yesterday) - I will spend every November in the sunshine somewhere.
We always had real candles. But then again the Brits are a bit wierd anyhow
