    Festivus, a holiday for the rest of us

    Yes, It's that time of year again. Festivus is rapidly approaching with celebrations to be held on the 23rd of December. Now is your chance to tell your family and friends how much they have dissapointed you throughout the course of the year in what is known as the "airing of grievences". This is followed by The Feats of Strength, a chance for you to physically embarass the weaker and smaller members of your family.

    I for once will defaintly be celebrating festivus come the 23rd of December and I'm looking for a large aluminium pole - any donations can be made to the Human Fund

    You Philistine. Festivus is a holiday comparable to that of easter or indeed, even Christmas

    Won't have a chance to celebrate. Will most likely play for CW XI football as a sub.

    Christmas dinner is average. Turkey is bland, wow vegetables, not keen on roast potatoes, but stuffing is quite good.

    Agreed. Not a real fan of roast dinners, and I just find cooked vegetables dire.

    I`m for it. Would much rather eat Maccas, but turkey and veggies are good in my books.

    Christmas lunch is tops. Nice roast turkey with crisp, golden potatoes, asparagus, peas and a bit of stuffing, with wine to wash it down.

    Then sliced ham for a light dinner with the left over vegetables and some rum & coke.

    Christmas Lunch consists of ham, chicken, turkey and roasted vegetables.
    Christmas dinner is cold meats, salads, barbeque, and plenty'o'beer.
