I haven't got a crock pot big enough for a whole moose, would it be permissible to take the antlers off and leave the celery root on the chopping board?

If so I might be able to fit a small one in.


Oh look here's one that's already been de-horned, that'll do.

Re: The C word

We don't do Turkey.....it is far too big even if I give some to my neighbour and Ma.
One year the bird we were having hasn't thawed out properly so we had spud pie with red cabbage......we really really enjoyed it.
The bird was cooked the following day......and though it was passable the spud pie was great.....so what could have been a disaster was rescued by having a plan B.

I make Christmas cards......and while most of mine have very few religious connotations......other than the significance of the day, it is good to think that someone took the time to think about you......and think about you enough to send a card.

Margaret, it is lovely that you received a card from your Muslim carer......and while you might feel it is unwanted, it would be churlish to express that.
Be glad that someone thought of you.
I do not send cards to get cards.....I send them because winter is a miserable dark time......and these are a colourful reminder of friends and family. We may not see them often, but they are still there.

What a shame, had you cooked it that day, you would have been able to play that tradition Christmas game of 'last one in the bathroom doesn't get the bog', followed by that popular one for lovers of all things festive, 'Pass the toilet roll'.

Are you saying,

IN YOUR FACE SANTA, THIS IS FOR THAT TIME WHEN I WAS 8 AND YOU DIDN'T BRING THE PUSHBIKE I WANTED

Perhaps this will explain why he got it wrong that year?



By the way if you are of a sensitive nature don't play the rest of his xmas songs the above is the cleanest, everyone else enjoy!

Re: The C word

AccyX I actually feel sorry for you (there's a first time for everything!) having to 'tolerate' Christmas. If you feel like that just stay in bed for the day, I doubt you'd be good company with that attitude. I'm sure if you really put yourself out you would find some enjoyment - you reap what you sow.

However, I do think it has become much too commercialised and is far removed from when I was a child, many moons ago. In those days money was noticeable by its absence but somehow my mother always managed to fill the pillowcases we put out, would be nuts, fruit, sweets, etc., and a special present. I have wonderful memories of Christmas.

Re: The C word

No, I don't think that is quite right.....about Christmas not being as good because we have to pay for it.
I think that as parents we give the wrong message to our children.....we raise their expectations too high. We let them believe that the more gifts they get, the better Christmas it will be......and I think we sometimes try to outdo the gifts given by other people.
When we were children(yes it was a long time ago) we knew our parents had not got a lot of money. It wasn't the thing in those days to buy things on credit.....in fact you couldn't do it easily. We did not expect a lot.....and were pleased with sweets, nuts, a tangerine wrapped in foil, a new coin and my favourite present was a large tin box of watercolour paints.
That is the difference. Children expect....their expectations fired by all the adverts on TV......and parents feel they have let their child down if they do not come up with the goods.

Re: The C word

Considering my stance: Every year I buy chocolates for people at work. This year my niece friend worked with us temping and she leaves tomorrow so I have bought them early and we have, overall have had some good temps.

The reason... I don't like Christmas cards. I find it to be a waste of money and a waste of resources(and there is always someone I forget haha) so I take in chocolates instead. I just spent £24 on chocolates to go around... So... Anyway. I ain't religious, Don't particularly care anymore in xmas; but its a good time as any to be nice to those you care about and those around you.

I know full well,Christmas is what you make of it....its personal thing,you either get into the sprit and celebrate it or you don't.
I choose to opt out and not make a big song and dance about it but at the same time good luck to those who are gullible enough to fall for the BS.

Excluding the In laws, I'm lucky,I regularly spend time and socialise with family members and with homelessness the way it is and knowing there's folk with nobody at Christmas (the ones you should feel sorry for),I don't need a faux tree,sweater and few lights to remind me how lucky I am.

Don't get me started on consumerism,I know folk who start shopping mid year so they can afford everyone's presents and they still end up putting debt on their cards...utter madness.
Christmas is not just for kids it's for the corporations too (even more so).

What are you be having for Xmas lunch? Mrs E wants goose or Turkey with all the trimmings.... I'd be happy with chicken
