I can't bear it

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:


Unrelated? I think not.

Sure, kids like the lights, but they think that lead paint chips are edible and green vegetables aren't, so what the hell do they know?

You mark my words - fairy lights are frying the planet.

I don't have any fairy lights so I'm doing my bit to not fry the planet. But they are pretty.

That's a rather naughty looking iceburg he thought as he turned on his chrissy lights <^..^>

I hate Christmas. Its one day that lasts three months.

jacob, I know! That guy out at Salisbury who puts up 10 gazillion lights every year and does little sound and light shows is possibly the most Christmas obsessed person in the world. How would you be if someone new moved in next door and you discovered it was him?!

river, it's those inflatable Santas that slowly rise up out of their inflatable chimneys that really bother me. ~shudder~ The light of hell glows from their inflatable eyes...

ali g, shame! ;)

phish, let's just call it what it is - Western Consumer Holiday. Or Pissmas.

Yeah, I know.

On November 24, I hand out Green how-to-votes to ALL my neighbours at the local state school. The very next week-end, Mrs Fitz turns our front yard into Exhibit B. D'Oh!

One tasteful strand is pretty. A neon house is a monstrosity. Not to mention frying the planet. It's sick, that's what it is.

Ha! I always suspected Santa was evil.

Western Consumer Holiday

I remember a couple of decades ago when a Tokyo department store tried to cash in on these "Christian Festivals" that were such money-spinners overseas...

They put a life-size Santa Claus dummy in the middle of their store ... and NAILED HIM TO A CROSS!

(Wouldn't we all like to do that sometimes?)

I don't mind fairy lights so much, as long as they're not wrapped around giant fake snowmen or snowflakes or reindeer OR ANY OTHER FUCKING CHRISTMAS CLICHE THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AUSTRALIA.

Grumble grumble.
