Re: Christmas

So January 6th is Little Christmas in NI? Here we call the 23d of December "Little Christmas Eve".
That evening it's «Same procedure as every year, James!». We watch "Dinner for One/Grevinnen og hovmesteren".

Re: Christmas

I think Jan 6th is old Christmas day ( The calendar  changed)
So to cover themselves, some go to church etc.
I only step in to a church for Weddings and Funerals,  so I'm no
expert on the subject. ajb007/wink

Re: Christmas

Some Christmas decorations are up, but the tree isn't even cut yet. In fact, I don't think we've even found it. It looks like we won't get to keep this snow till Christmas.  ajb007/crap

Re: Christmas

We use an artificial tree  ajb007/wink  I love the planet too much to waste our resources.  ajb007/biggrin

We got a new one a few years back, when my wife complained that it was starting
To lean to one side etc. She couldn't understand why I wanted to keep it ?
So I pointed out to her that.........
It was the first tree we bought together, both of our daughters had celebrated
Christmas around it since they were born. It was also the last tree my late
Mother had  enjoyed Christmas and new years with us. .....
..... Needless to say, old tree dumped and new tree bought. At times I feel more

Re: Christmas

It would be wrong of us not to use a real tree. We often pick one standing close to another tree, so we thin out the forrest. We cut it only a few days before Christmas and let it dry or defrost on the veranda until the 23d. Then we take it indoors and decorate it.

Re: Christmas

roast pork,
roast spuds,
pigs in blankets,
stuffing,
peas,
Brussle sprouts (yuk)
carrots,
cauliflower cheese,
gravy,
Yorkshire puds
followed by ,mince pies,christmas pudding,cream,trifle,cheese and biscuits ,grapes/walnuts/dates,
plus the usual Champagne ,Port,to wash it all down
god I hate Christmas dinner

By the way, did I tell you,  I was       "Mad"?

Re: Christmas

Swap your Brussle sprouts (yuk) for Brussels sprouts - they're my favourite! Unfortunately they're not in season for Xmas.

Re: Christmas

I heard on the radio this morning, that it's the tradition  in Iceland
to give a book as a present on Christmas eve.  For something to

On Christmas Eve we have taken over our favourite restaurant on Mactan Island for the family (over 100 guests  ajb007/lol ) it will be a buffet with lechon (whole roast pig) as the centrepiece with other popular local dishes such as chicken adobo and pancit (noodles).

Our maid is going to her family home for Christmas so I will be cooking a traditional English lunch on Christmas Day - we have a branch of Marks and Spencer in Cebu and I have ordered turkey with all the trimmings. we will be having champagne, Chablis and Tanduay rum throughout the day  ajb007/biggrin .

A very merry Christmas to all AJBers around the world.  ajb007/martini  ajb007/martini  ajb007/martini

I wish the Merriest of Merriest, and Happiest of Happiest to all AJBers.  ajb007/cheers
Where ever you are in the world.  I hope everyone gets what they want ( if they've
been good boys and girls) and even if you've been naughty, I hope you get something
Special.  ajb007/biggrin   ajb007/cheers

Well, with purple hair, lipstick and feminine glasses what do you expect? ajb007/wink  Just kidding obviously.  One of Australia's better comedians but they are so far behind the British in 'clever humour' it is not funny (pardon the pun).

Anyway, my very best wishes to you and your family for the Christmas season  ajb007/martini  ajb007/martini
