I've seen this written in 3 magazines in the last fortnight. "Christmas decs"

It's making me angry. AIBU?

OK, don't take this the wrong way, but BREATHE! It's OK, you'll get through the anger!

Are there any particular magazines who are most likely to be the culprits? If so can you avoid them?

Not worth getting worked up over.

It is worth it. It is.

What else? Christmas dins? Christmas prezzies? (oh, they've already done that one)

Right, then you need to stop looking at those particular mags (see what I did there wink grin ) and start reading naice publications. Good Housekeeping? Horse and Hound? Amateur Gardening?

YANBU at all. My bugbear is Xmas. Urgh. Xmas deccies would make me grumpy.

I've got a Good Housekeeping here, unopened. If I open it and see 'decs' I am going all out, Falling Down style.

Yy to Xmas. You lazy fuckers!

If the term "decs" is in GH then please let me know and I will stop purchasing!

(Although if it mentions DECs, as in belonging to the Disasters Emergency Committee, then I feel it is only right that this should be forgiven)

Harpy YANBU - Xmas even looks ugly

I will report back, Foxache. <grave>

Xmas is fine in my book - WHEN WRITTEN - I have a greek heritage.... it is not lazy and is often how Christ (Xpiotos - X =ch P = ro - I can't get the greek alphabet up... ) was first written in the ancient documents....

but SAYING EX-MAS is just rubbish...

MarmaladeBatkins Mon 11-Nov-13 11:43:11

Do people actually write it as a nod to Greek language though or just because they are lazy feckers?

I must investigate...

MarmaladeBatkins Mon 11-Nov-13 11:43:49

Right you are, StarDust

LOL - I think some do it through laziness, but others like me do it as a nod to the Greek...
