    My favourite time of the year, by a mile! With only 22 days left until the big day (3 weeks tomorrow) how's your plans going? How's shopping? Food shopping? Any last minute plans? Going away anywhere? What's Santa bringing you?

    I'll be taking the dog to mum and dad's for a nice family christmas.

    I'm constantly broke, swamped with work, pressurized by family commitments, and just plain tired. Worst Christmas ever is coming my way.
     
  4. I bet a lot of people are going to feel the pinch this year, 2008 has been a very poor year all round really.

    I stay away from all the religious bull that comes with it and celebrate it for what it really is ; The Winter Festival (Christians merely hijacked an existing festival). This can be difficult considering i'm the only atheist in my family but hey ho...

    Its a time for family and I try to see as much of mine as I can on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

    Satan Claus will be bringing me an electric banjo this year!

    play.com is the one for me, free delivery, the only problem is they rip you off over the difference between sterling and the euro, still cheaper then everywhere else though.
     
  14. I use play.com or anything I can get quidco back from actually.

    Booooooo! What Holidays have the atheists ever given us? NONE! So...smoke that in your pipe! Ha Ha.

    But on a more serious note, I feckin' love Christmas! I love the secular side of it as well as the sacred. It's just, as the cheesey song suggests, "the most wonderful time of the year."

  16. I like Christmas spending time with your family gorging on yummy food and getting ******. B) Since Santa Rudd is giving me $1400 bucks i'll have presents sorted and when my next payday comes ill have money to spend on copious amounts of alcohol et al.

    Its going to be a happy happy christmas. :D

    Haha!

    In all seriosuness though, why would we create a holiday for something requiring non-belief in any deity?

    WOO! Happy non-factual-deity-day! :banana_flip: which is almost as popular as Happy N*gga Day.. on Happy N*gga Day we all dress up as minstrels and drink the festive drink of ******. It's like eggnog, but chocolate flavoured ahaha

    Sorry for the use of the word n*gga.
     
  19. I hate Xmas shopping, it always proves so stressful. Girlfriend is getting rugby shirt at the moment (lucky her :p) but it's a bugger finding places that stock the women's ones you want. Brother will probably get a Wii game (any suggestions game buffs, baring in mind that he's only 12?), and only one of the parents is sorted.

    Whoever invented the idea of Secret Santa is a genius though - only having to make any effort for one friend is so much easier.

    And our tutors - for Xmas they've given us 2 essays and the odd presentation to make. Can't say they don't embrace the spirit of the season.
     
  20. SFW, I have lecturers like that too!
