Hannukah isn't over yet . It will be over tomorrow, though. But like Whitehat said before, try to stretch out the holidays so you remember the memories for a longer time

and, oh yes, happy new year to you ,too

Regards,
Jerry

nope, It was officially over when I posted the thread.

Christmas day is the same as any other day i.e. 24 hours long. And I'd like to point out that as WE invented time and latitudes and shit like that, I've only got to drive about 15 miles along the coast road and I'd be sitting on top of zero degree's i.e. the greenwich meridian.

So anyone further east has already finished crimbo, and all you lot west are playing catch up.

Besides, even during christmas day, it's still 364 shopping days till christmas (just to be petty).

Enjoy your new year celebrations (if any).

regards

John

2004 is a leap year, which means an extra day in February. Therefore, there are 365 shopping days until Christmas 2004.

Well Nick, that just gives you the extra day to make sure that you've done all the crimbo shopping stuff

Mind you, I've just finished my first "post crimbo milk run" (as in the milk that I deliver in my truck - usually about 26 or so tonnes at a time - and believe it or not, they're putting out the easter egg displays already)

regards

John

Aaaargh - Easter Eggs already

This really annoys me, Christmas decs up on September and Easter Eggs in December. Yes, I know that the shops want our money (and have to have it to survive) but anyone who buys eggs now is going to have unhappy recipients in March/April - chocolate tastes horrible after that long a time.

And retailers wonder why we think they are cynical.
