Father Christmas

Hi Everyone.

What are you asking Father Christmas for this year?

I have asked for snow. I have also asked him to let my parents celebrate Christmas and eat turkey and stuffing. It's hard to be a Jew at Christmas :lol:

    Insist that all your family have a short term conversion! Of course it will mean midnight mass, the choir, a bit the worse for wear, singing excruciating tuneless carols, and being slowly suffocated by the Parish Priest's fascination with burning incense.

    Oh go on then, where do I sign up with the Rabbi?

    Happy Hannuka

    I already go to midnight mass with a friend. I am a singer and last year the choir mistress heard me singing and she asked me to join the choir. I had to turn her down :crying: .

    It's just not fair.

    Mind you us Jews do have Chanukah and we get presents on all eight days of that festival so I suppose I can;t complain really.

    I still hope Father Christmas brings me some snow though. Fingers crossed.

    Place a bit then. You're bound to get great odds because it never snows.

    Well that's my theory anyway.

    By the way everyone, here is a song written by a chap called Tom Lehrer which is all about Christmas.

    Christmas time is here, by golly,
    Disapproval would be folly,
    Deck the halls with hunks of holly,
    Fill the cup and don't say "when."
    Kill the turkeys, ducks and chickens,
    Mix the punch, drag out the Dickens,
    Even though the prospect sickens,
    Brother, here we go again.
    On Christmas Day you can't get sore,
    Your fellow man you must adore,
    There's time to rob him all the more
    The other three hundred and sixty-four.
    Relations, sparing no expense'll
    Send some useless old utensil,
    Or a matching pen and pencil.
    "Just the thing I need! How nice!"
    It doesn't matter how sincere it
    Is, nor how heartfelt the spirit,
    Sentiment will not endear it,
    What's important is the price.
    Hark the Herald Tribune sings,
    Advertising wondrous things.
    God rest ye merry, merchants,
    May you make the Yuletide pay.
    Angels we have heard on high
    Tell us to go out and buy!
    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
    Hail our dear old friend Kris Kringle,
    Driving his reindeer across the sky.
    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.

    My family are abandoning me a Christmas and ****ing off the Egypt lucky buggers.

    Is there anyone living in or around London who is willing to feed me on Boxing Day. I eat anything except liver or brussel sprouts, I wear hoodies and we can discuss the benefits of being MIPs if you really want.

    Anyone?

    Maybe you are approaching this from the wrong angle Speegs. If your family aren't there have a Xmas party in your house and we can all come down for civilised conversation and fine food.:laugh:

    Hi Sarah

    I would have the party in my house, but I am afraid of a FACEBOOK scenario.

    No silly! Preston Road. It is in Wembley, North West London.

    If you lean out of my bedroom window at a precarious angle you can see the great white turd that is the new Wembley Stadium. Not that you will be in my bedroom. :wink:

    I passed through Preston Road tube station many a time when I lived in the wilds of Hillingdon - often drunk after a night on the town.

    I think getting to Cornwall for Boxing Day would be even worse than Manchester, speegs and probably a lot more boring when you got here too!

    I wonder is Santa's sleigh would be classed as a taxable benefit? I think it should be. What with all those carbon emissions being omitted by Rudolph and his mates.
