Rules are for the adherence of fules.
 
'Tis Christmas still, so suit yourselves - never mind owd boggers like Misery-guts 'uggett. I know of an old dear who never takes her decorations down from one year to the next...........I think she's trying to seduce Santa into a summer romance  :kiss:

Here, in my part of France, the municipal decorations (incidentally, truly first class) sometimes stay up until February. The first year I lived here I asked about why they were left up for so long and I was told, "Because we like them"!

You are not alone Gribeauval we couldn't be bothered to put up any decs this year either, doubt very much they will go up next year either.

Best day of the year = Boxing day!!!!!........ The longest possible time before the next xmas day!!
