I thought Santa on a jet ski was very wrong on holiday one year.

I was driving through town after dark with dd and went on the route of the christmas lights so she could see them. She's just young enough to be impressed, it's not exactly las vegas. She started shouting 'A CARROT mummy!'. I looked at where she was pointing, and sure enough the lights were in the shape of a massive christmas...carrot! How festive grin

My local garden center has a huge x-mas desplay/shop, lots of lovely themes (different theme is each room) but one of the themes is the beach and fish hmm (shells, deck chairs and bright fish), surely x-mas is about snow and robins?

Seaside is just wrong. As is black & white flock theme, teal blue & black, in fact black per se is just not christmassy.

Our local independant gift shop is selling Christmas Eggs...ceramic egg-shaped boxes (to keep jewellery in, I assume) painted in festive colours. I get confused every time I pass the window display, surely eggs are for Easter?

I was in Yeovil one year at Christmas where one of the big employers is Westlands who make helicopters. Lo and behold one of the Christmas lights was a big lit up helicopter.

Christmas starting too early is also hugely wrong in my opinion - one house in our village had a Christmas wreath on their door last week (it was still November ffs!).

Went up to London with DH work to see a show in London close to one Christmas. We went by coach, and on the way home the driver took us around Oxford St and Regent see the lights. Orange lights, naff ones at that, because they were sponsored by a fizzy drink manufacturer. Utterly un-Christmassy.

Anyway. 3 days after it was put up and the locals had done their hmm confused shockfaces while standing around looking at it we had a big storm and the UFO crashed to the ground and broke.

It was never repaired and the next year we got our tree back grin

A department store in Bangkok had a huge pyramid shaped tenty affair with a woman inside it. The tent shaped thing was her skirt. This poor individual's job was to stand there all day. A living sculpture type thing. Very bizzare.
