Ho ho ho!

Yes, it's that most magical time of year, when MN becomes all festive and even more giddy. Put a Christmas spin on your nickname (demonstrated by moi), post on this thread with it, along with your old NN so we can see how clever you've been fsmile

Then we'll create a shortlist (judges decision is final fwink) and a poll, and you can vote for your favourite. And since it's Christmas, there'll be a prize for 1st place and runner up <eyes up prize cupboard hopefully>

Enjoy! fgrin

UPDATE: The poll is now open - you've got until tomorrow to vote for your favourite!

Your name was superb fsmile

I don't know what they are sending me yet but I am getting prize guilt.

If it's a multi pack of M&S knickers we can all share.

If it involves chocolate though I may renege on my earlier offer...

Don't worry - they're sending them by Parcelforce.

Oh, hang on...

IHeardMummyDissingParcelforce Fri 20-Dec-13 10:51:36

<waves jovially>

Morning everyone! Well after a nail biting race, the results are in. In first place is IHeardMummyDissingParcelForce, and in second is ClausIsRealTruly

<applause all round>

Well done everyone who took part - as ever, a very high standard of namechange.

Huge apols for the confusion yesterday. I can only blame gin and the thought of Idris Elba in the office, a potentially lethal combination.

Merry Christmas everyone! wine

IHeardMummyDissingParcelforce Fri 20-Dec-13 07:48:53

Where is your partisanship, Nickel? Not good enough. Tut. You need to be drawing swords on one side or t'other. preferably mine

Mickey I think that the egg name is probably the best I have ever heard.

How could you not have won with THAT beauty?

MickeyBaubles Fri 20-Dec-13 02:01:38

Bless all who voted for Justresting - I had hoped the Cockney vote would be larger fwink That Mo put you all off didn't she?!
It was nice to be nommed though - has only happened once before*, lost then too but it's the taking part innit? fgrin
My own husband would have voted for DrivingHolmesForXmas the treacherous snake - but that name change made him go Yay and do his Chris Rhea impression.

Congrats chaos and rooners - and commiserations to my two other favourites which weren't nominated... mcpheelingupSanta (inspired) and Mmecinqanneauxd'or (clever)

Merry Christmas Everyone and thanks for getting me through another year
Will be twirling yet another name change at Easter...

Mickey aka Mincepies xx
