It's official, the silly season is upon us and we've finally got round to dusting off the baubles and embracing the tinsel. We'll be hosting our annual Christmas party from Christmas Eve till the big day itself and everyone is welcome!

If you've got a busy day planned please feel free to pop in and wish your fellow Gransnetters whenever you can, and if you find yourself on your own for Christmas for whatever reason, bring a (virtual) bottle or plate of mince pies, put on your paper hat, tell us a cheesy snowman joke and join the party!

Thanks to your suggestions from last year, we have a Christmas playlist all ready to go but if any of your favourites are missing please add them to this thread and we can include them.

In the meantime, if you've got any virtual decorations to add to the mix, please do. The gaudier the better obviously. tchgrin

My favourite seasonal joke, so far:

A line of Santa’s little helpers dance into a bar. The barman (who loves an anagram) says ‘why the elf conga?’ tchwink

I love anagrams to ( long face emoji lacking on here)
Did you hear about the dyslexic devil worshipper? He sold his soul to Santa.

Good morning all- a bit early for jokes for me but Merry Christmas all. [thcsmile]

A party! I am on my own at Christmas apart from my cats.
Folk don’t know what they are missing. Or maybe they do !

What did Adam say to his wife on the day before Christmas?

It’s Christmas, Eve.

I like that song by Greg Lake x

lovebeigecardigans1955 Thu 12-Dec-19 12:51:01

I also love the Greg Lake song, I Believe in Father Christmas.

Could I bring a mountain of smoked salmon?
Ooh, and trifle?
And lashings of tea?

"It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas", two youngest grandchildren helped put up and decorate the tree. We made some cards, drank hot chocolate and watched the Grinch.
Perfect😇 mayhem .

We have finally got decorations sorted ,wrapping pressies today 😧We had two very excited GC yesterday singing Christmas songs 😮😂

LuckyFour Sun 15-Dec-19 10:40:15

I could do with cheering up - thanks gransnet.
We're going away to distant daughter's for a week over Christmas so we haven't put up a tree. Still not bought all Christmas presents and annoyingly a couple of birthday presents. DH does nothing except the occasional unhelpful suggestion. Came home 5 pm yesterday after looking for gifts in a very crowded town. DH not even started evening meal let alone put the kettle on. I've been sulking ever since. I know it's childish but I have to start again today doing everything. No, I'm not going to ask.

Sorry, rant over. Thank goodness for gransnet!

Americanpie Sun 15-Dec-19 10:48:28

Please add Walking in the air from the Snowman sung by Aled Jones. It always reminds me of Christmas. Thanks.

Pittcity Sun 15-Dec-19 10:59:53

The kettle's always on in Soop's kitchen but in here it's champagne central! tchgrin

Last Christmas, Mary's Boy Child (Johnny Mathis X

Nortsat46 Sun 15-Dec-19 17:28:24

Well dragonfly, Pooh and Piglet are taking us all to the pub first ... (see her earlier thread *To lighten the mood a bit ...*)

But we’ll come on after that .... can we have lots of virtual crisps, nuts and canapés please ... as they are obviously calorie free. Also many glasses of (virtual) fizz for me please ... as it is obviously hang-over free.

HillyN Sun 15-Dec-19 21:43:29
