    Hooray! I spotted some christmas cards for sale on a market stall today.
    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
    Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
    Driving his reindeer across the sky.
    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.

    Hooray! I've spotted the first tins of Qauality Street on sale in Tesco. The cost the same 5 as last year but I suspect that they've 'shrunk' in some other respects...

    Yeah...I took the boys there a couple weeks ago to look at ornaments. I wanted to get one for my wife, but you have to be a "member" in order to get it. Well, after the membership fee AND the cost of the ornament, it's over $50. Forget that crap!
    I love Outdoor Christmas Lights!!

    I know - I never join the club, I just buy their regular ornaments. If you are a true collector and looking for the ornaments to escalate in value, then the membership fee is worth it because those member-only ornaments are much more limited! I have a Hallmark ornament from 1979 that is worth $500 now! And it was just a reguklar $5 ornament at that time
