    What's peoples choice of beverage for Christmas?

    White Christmas or something special for the occasion?

    Edit: White Christmas might be a Swenglish expression

    *Without alcohol or something special for the occasion?

    What’s with everybody jumping on this advent calendar bandwagon? It’s come from a kids chocolate thing now to booze, cheese, candles, bath bombs, etc.

    But tonight we’re eating out, in a restaurant, with a bar, serving ale, on tap.

    I desperately want to convey seasonal greetings to everyone and without offending any human under Section 18c of the Racial Discrimination Act.
    So ... Please accept, without obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non addictive, gender neutral celebration of the summer solstice holiday, practised with the most enjoyable traditions of religious persuasion or secular practices of your choice with respect for the religious / secular persuasions and / or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated, recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2021; but not without due respect for the calendar of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make our country great (not to imply that our country is necessarily greater than any other country) and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wisher.
    NOTE: This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no
    promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her / him or others and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at
    the sole discretion of the wisher.
    Name withheld (Privacy Act).

    Well I’m sat having a glass of 15 year tawny port right now (well I think it says 15 years old on the bottle, might be 10 but I can’t reach it to check & I’ve had it ages so it’ll be middle aged by now anyway)
    Christmas Day menu
    Pink Moët for breakfast (with croissants)
    Scotch in the morning (Glenlivet Founders Reserve hopefully as long as no one finds the good stuff!)
    Normal Moët with Christmas dinner
    Probably Peroni later on as a palate cleanser

    At some point I will be making Salted Caramel Espresso Martinis for the ladies

    I'm guessing, but my suspicion is most of the posters on this 'effing site have strong links with 'Ull. Why do I say that? Well, it's the obvious sardonic sense of humour that pervades almost every thread, a trait I remember from being there almost 55 years ago now.

    Nowt's changed. Merry Christmas all of you sad bastards who never got out of the place.

    Seriously - stay safe & all the best to y'all for 2021.<cracker><cheers>

    All I ever got was a picture of a bell.

    Or a holly leaf.




    Or a star.


    There was always a star.

    Haha
    Took the words out of my mouth
    Chocolate?...luxury!...mines/cardboard boxes/holes in the road/stars behind card windows etc.

    We bought the grown up kids advents this year that may as well have had new cars behind every window for all the similarity they have to the ones I had growing up


    Kids today...

    When you live in West Penrith, Cornwall everyone comes from the East. Happy Christmas to you all. I hope you have a fantastic day tomorrow. Drinking champagne and Peronis now so not many conscious hours left. Stay safe wherever you are and have the best festive season you can.
