    ... I just saw the first christmas advert by Coca Cola. To me that's always been the definition of when Christmas starts, since they don't seem to start advertising for Christmas in October like ASDA does.

    I don't start feeling Christmassy or getting the Christmas spirit until the Coca Cola adverts start. Guess I should start my Christmas shopping soon now...

    Do you mean the one with the dodgy Santa-stalking woman who gives him a bottle of pop at the end? It's been on for a good fortnight or so already, so you're already a little behind with your shopping I'm afraid. ;)

    We put the Christmas decorations up in the shop last week (under great protest from myself - it was still November, after all), but now I'm starting to fell a little Christmassy. Especially after watching Nigella cooking glazed ham and christmas cake on TV last night! All I need now are a mince pie and the repeats of 'Delia Smith's Christmas' on one of the Sky Digital channels and I'll be set!


    I remember watching one of the ITV Saturday morning children shows (mmm Holly) when two hyenas did that in front of the presenters, mid sentence. It only lasted a few seconds but it made laugh until I cried.

    Yes, I know I'm a sad twenty-something! ;)

    I guess this year it hit me when I saw the ads on TV for the Yule Log.

    I remember the Coca-Cola commercial that went something like that. I think it had a train in it. That one reminds me that Christmas is almost here. :)

    It feels more like "Christmas" tonight, because I'm near Washington, DC...and the first SNOW of the season started a few minutes ago!

    It's Christmas for me when the before-Thanksgiving Christmas commercials start playing on TV. Actually, it's officially Christmas when I start getting sodomized by those pretentious give-your-trophy-wife-a-Lexus ads that start playing non-stop until December 26. :rolleyes:

    Where is near? 5-10 miles NE of the city are still clear skies - absolutely gorgeous night with crisp clouds and an almost full moon.

    Christmas season seems to start earlier and earlier each year.

    I saw a Christmas tree and lights in a nearby house at the beginning of November.

    I just hope we get some snow or at least a heavy frost on Christmas Day.

    I don't start feeling Christmassy until somebody proves to me that Jesus was real. Bah humbug.

    Oh! It's not Christmas just yet until Andrex show the puppy/slide/Slade advert. or at least, not fully Christmas :D

    Just got my hands on Cassette Boy's Christmas song. Looks to be a champion 15 minutes of goodness.

    I don't like the Coca Cola Christmas ads. They're so fake and cliché.
