Got so addicted to this website in the run-up last year. Particularly enjoyed looking back over Christmases past smile

For the uninitiated, [[ here you go]]

Ugh sorry let's try again

70isaLimitNotaTarget Wed 25-Jun-14 20:55:44

Oooh ta grin
Harrods Christmas World eh?

Might suggest a family trip to London and send DH and DC off to the Science Museum while I go to Harrods in peace wink

0pheliaBalls Wed 25-Jun-14 21:18:22

We're in London for my birthday in August and seeing as it's a birthday trip DH can hardly refuse me a visit to Harrods now can he? grin

Seriously I love that site. Wait until the 100 day mark, then they REALLY get going!

TheOnlyPink Thu 21-Aug-14 16:06:53

Have them on Twitter too. Really enjoyed the Christmas in July stuff.

Same here jersey

Dolly it's COMPLETELY addictive, especially when they go full tilt at the 100 days to Christmas mark (around mid September). I was checking it about 50 times daily last year grin
They've put a few of the things I've tweeted them on the website - I'm ludicrously proud of this fact (and may have just outed myself grin )

MrsMinton Thu 21-Aug-14 19:23:45

I have lived all this time not knowing this website exists shock thank you for enlightening me!

bookmarks and goes to make brew to properly enjoy it

misstiredbuthappy Thu 21-Aug-14 19:26:16

Do they put more stuff on closer to christmas ?

quirkycutekitch Mon 25-Aug-14 18:28:02

Loved watching the tv adverts from the last few years this morning!

0pheliaBalls Mon 25-Aug-14 19:10:30

Happy yes they do, they post several times a day. Have a look at last year's posts to get an idea (and to feel Christmassy grin ). I especially love their watchlist (look! One item's been crossed off already!) - it's stupidly exciting watching all the items get crossed off as Christmas gets closer.

The TV old ads are fab aren't they? Me and DD spent ages watching them last year. Also loved all the old BBC idents.

0pheliaBalls Mon 25-Aug-14 19:10:51

Old TV ads, even grin

0pheliaBalls Tue 16-Sep-14 07:34:15

They've gone full tilt! grin

From now on there's a daily countdown and comments. It gets addictive grin

Love the Christmas 2013 recap!

0pheliaBalls Tue 16-Sep-14 07:35:20

And two things have been crossed off the watchlist already! grin

70isaLimitNotaTarget Thu 18-Sep-14 20:42:43

Bumping because we've passed into double figures now (yeah)

Just watched the Christmas Adverts bit (some absolute tripe out there ) but I rewatched the John Lewis Snowman Advert (because it is so sad when he crouched at the edge of the motorway flyover) and the M&S one (because David Gandy is in it, and I don;t need a reason grin )

BaconAndAvocado Thu 18-Sep-14 22:42:06


This website is too too scrumptious! How did I (self-confessed OCD - Obsessive Christmas Disorder - sufferer)

Can't be doing with Christmas spoilers tho!

dollybean Fri 19-Sep-14 09:05:56

Yep I'm going to be checking it every day grin
