    Ours is lovely too as we have the christmas lights and there's an old merry go round, helter skelter, roasted chestnut stand. It's a scene SO from a christmas card. :)

    George Square is lovely at Christmas time. As are Princes St Gardens in Edinburgh. I shall miss that this year. Not sure what Sheffield are putting on but I want to go to the German Market in Leeds in December :)

    Ooooh! Your first Christmas together, how lovely! Well, it'll be a nice wee change. Maybe Glasgow and Edinburgh'll have a rival ;)

    Well, when December comes, I'll go buy everyone presents. Then I get an "accomplice"; usually my mum or grandma, depending on who's house the table will be held, and hide them all there.
    On Christmas day, I get dressed as Santa and give the presents. The show is mainly for my little cousin, but I think he knows it's me too...

    Also, first chance I get in December, I stay up late one night and build the Christmas Tree (we use a fake).

    Who knows. I love Edinburgh at Christmas time. I wonder what it will be like here ...

    It will be really weird but i'm sure all cities celebrate Christmas in their own way. At least it'll better than Kyle :lol:

    i love it

    customers buying you presents, xmas dinner is just so gorgeous and is better than any old sunday roast, buying presents, wrapping them, sending out all the cards, getting nice cards, thinking about the year thats gone and what you've done, parties lots of vol-au-vonts and snacks, booze!, feeling like a little kid when you get your presents, watching other people open the ones you have bought them, all the shopping centres all done up

    and then theres new year!!

    I'll hate this Christmas... I mean...

    24 dec is me and my bf 10th month... but I'll have to spend the eve with my fathers part of the family... I like them very much, but my parents got divorced in october and he will get out in december... my father is too childish and I don't know what to do... if he tries to say something I don't like I guess I'll have to spend my Xmas on the car....

    25 dec... mom's part of the family... they think they are better than me because I'm from town and they don't... and I don't know how to cook sophisticated things and stuff... but.. hey! they don't know what is a factorial... they don't know anything bout chemistry... grrrrrrrrrrr worse Xmas ever :crazyeyes
