    Right. I thought it would be interesting to see what makes different people realise it is Christmas or nearly Christmas. For me, it has to be hearing Slade's "Merry Christmas Everybody" for the first time on the radio.

    Discuss. (+ No trolls please! :awesome: )

    A lot of people are going to say the Coca Cola advert

    As I'm no longer watching TV or listening to radio, it's probably the first time I hear a christmas song. Which this year was 30th November. We also put some christmas decorations up in the flat's kitchen, and since then I've tried to listen to a few christmas songs each day.

    I love the happiness of christmas :awesome:

    When you go into a store and and hear Slade, pure bliss.

    Coca Cola advert is so predictable...

    I really do not know what a "Troll" is in the context of Forums.... The only Troll's I'm aware of are the type that live under the bridge in Billy Goats Gruff...

    "Park" Christmas Catalogues are ALWAYS advertised round about June time... So that really is a premature reminder of Christmas... But i only accept that the time for the arrival of Father Christmas is when The Pogues - Fairytale of New York is played for the first time on the radio... Although i am yet to hear it...

    The only time I've heard this song is when I went into Burton's Mens Store to request it on the Juke-Box-Music-Video thingy

    A forum "troll" is somebody who is basicly taking the proverbial out of a said thread, or people to cause unrest and get a reaction of said people.

    Also. Them adverts are rediculous. I'm sure i've seen them Park christmas catelogues advertised in January for the next christmas. Barmy.

    Once my tree goes up I know it's getting closer. Also when The Snowman is on tv, but usually it is on the week before christmas so it actually is close.
