As you drive down little east street from the war memorial and turn into eastgate street, some complete and utter tool in the building infront of you has got an array of christmas lights flashing madly at on coming traffic. They must've gone up on at least 22nd november...probably the earliest ive ever seen in a domestic dwelling.

It's pretty unbelievable that anyone should be putting up holiday lights when only the elite can afford to take time off work for holidays, if they are lucky enough to be given jobs at all; and when animals are still needlessly tortured and killed for unnecessary food and clothing when everything that the human population needs can be provided through vegan or vegetarian means.
We do not put up decorations and urge others to fight for social reform and not celebrate when there is nothing to celebrate yet. We must work without tiring to ensure social equality and rational living instead. I repeat: while people, even people close to home, are starving or threatened with being made homeless while others get fat through consumerism and overeating there is nothing to celebrate. No holidays, please!

No, Peter Pan, you would not get a shock. If you saw me in the street I am just another conservatively dressed person with no beard or bits of metal hanging out of my face. I was born and bred in Sussex during a time when we still had an orderly society and social values. I have worked all my life and put my kids through university; and they now have jobs and their own houses and family lives, and are busy raising the next generation of Sussex Jims.
I have grown tired of Christmas, though. It is over-hyped, and goes on far too long. And being self-employed, it makes December a short month for income.
I would rather the time off in the summer (if we have one next year).

My dog loves Christmas. She gets a bit of chicken and some new tuggies, which she unwraps herself.
I think we'll be waiting a long time for a party round at nudge's house.

Sussex Jim, you need to come and live in NZ. Christmas Day seems to be a lot shorter here, and Christmas Day pushed aside as quickly as possible so the workers can all take off on their summer holidays. Many of us have a barbeque on the beach on Christmas Day, and companies shut for a couple of weeks for summer hols Sadly though, it just doesn't feel Christmassy
