Christmas should be over by now; judging by the length of time the ‘run up to Christmas’ is taking. It’s been going on for donkeys years already, I swear it’s starting earlier every year.
“My name is Cynical Scribble and I’m officially fed up with Christmas”
…yet there are still 17 days to go until “The Big Day”.
If its not the jingly jangly sound of Christmas bells ringing out every time you put the television on, step into a shop or turn the radio on, it’s faux Christmas scenes everywhere.
I’ll concede some ground and say now-ish (8-10th Dec…with 2 weeks to go) is an ok time to start the run up to ‘festivities’, but all this shite started weeks ago. You can’t escape…every single shop in the world has tinsel hanging up with them flickery fairy lights - the ones that will cause an epileptic fit to some poor unsuspecting customer.
Even worse, my fellow office workers have ‘decorated’ our office with that shit thin tinsel stuff. You know the stuff…the bits that have been in someone’s loft for 10 years with most of the tassels ripped off? There are one or two decent bits of tinsel which have been put up, the rest are just basically bits of gold/silver string. The place is starting to resemble a pikeys grotto.
The whole thing just starts too early and I’m all christmased out already.
17 days to go. Sigh and double sigh.
