As for Christmas crap, one of the big department stores in the city has had their window display since 1 September.

I saw a set of Christmas lights up last night at someone's house.

I thought they might have been Halloween, with orange and/or purple, but they weren't.

Currently snowing, so seems appropriate.

I was getting in wood yesterday and there was a rather nice Christmas Tree that was in my way, should have chopped it.

I love Christmas, but I wish I could avoid the hassle of having to deal with the pain in the arse of decorating. It'd be nice if I could click my fingers and it was all done.

This entire end of the year, from when the weather starts getting sensible and the nights get longer right through to January 1st is my favourite.

Do not expect it to stick, too warm, but make the hills around look pretty.
