in thread Christmas Wishlists

Bah humbug, says Jenda :)

The main problem for me is how long xmas lasts -- it's in every shop by early november, there's no escape from it for almost two months. All the irksome cheerfullness would be easy to put up with if it only lasted a week or so.

Whilst it's often felt that the extended christmas is an invention of Big Business (TM) to suck more money out of us, I suspect it's actually the fault of government -- they want something to occupy some of our grumble-capacity for a couple of months so we grumble less about them :)

As for my xmas wishlist, it has to be hardy perennials such as -- more time, more sleep & more money.
