The season begins when folk start talking about it.

The joy begins when the shops shut on Christmas Eve.

After Bonfire Night. Oh and Starbucks red cups smile

When I manage to catch the Delia Christmas, it's always the one where she cooks a ham. (Flipping fascinating for a vegetarian ) grin

It all begins when I hear "Fairytale of New York" (Pogues) in a shop or on the radio,

Mmm not sure it varies.

I did manage a sneaky peruse of the Christmas decorations at a poncey Garden Compnay centre under the guise of looking for a plant.

Some hope, Christmas addict DH has been mentioning it since the beginning of Sept.
