    Re: Christmas When You Were Growing Up

    Toy Day was at the end of the school year in July. One lad brought in his Test Match cricket game set which took up half the classroom.

    I mostly remember these at the last day of term, but one teacher wouldn't let us one time because someone once had something nicked when they brought it in.

    Don't worry about it - I am a die-hard traditionalist especially at this time of year.

    It wasn't too bad.

    Did you see the Queen on the TV where you are?

    I can remember staying up on Christmas Eve in 1988 - 30 years ago - when Christmases were a lot more exciting!

    Anyway, I am watching the Midnight Mass with a glass of Harvey's Bristol Cream not far from where I am.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE ON THIS FORUM!

    My wife popped out this morning for a few last minute things, but we try to avoid Christmas Eve shopping if we can. A few years ago we were part of an ad hoc church choir formed especially to do a stint entertaining shoppers at a local Tesco for charity. On the Christmas Eve we finished about 9.30pm and by then the place was so much quieter than it had been earlier that day that we stopped and got a few things--first and as so far only time I have shopped that late on Christmas Eve.
