I know this is off topic ish, but my kids here in Spain are playing a game on the PS3 (Grand tourismo 5) with my daughter in the UK on line? they're talking and everything, heck they're even fighting over who let who win. How fascinating and weird is that?????

I'm making seasonal greetings cards - using beautiful images downloaded from the Hubble telescope site:
HubbleSite - Holiday Cards

Although as an atheist I don't celebrate Christmas, I know my friends and family in the UK like to get bits of festive cardboard to stick on their mantelpieces at this time of year, so this is a nice compromise!

While waiting for the prints to dry I am dabbling about on the Expat Forum, the world's finest timewaster.

Bah humbug!! As an atheist I do celebrate christmas. I'll celebrate anything you like if its fun and makes people happy lol!!!! Afterall, it isnt really the exact aniversary of Jesus' birth, they dont know when that was, but it is also the pagan festival of midwinter so for me its the spirit, not the meaning that matters!

Well it's different for you, you've got kids - you couldn't get away with ignoring it like we do!

I love decorating the house with lights and candles in midwinter, but that's cos it's the darkest time of year and it's fun. I enjoy the Spanish Christmas songs too, very cheery.

I'm behind my bar waiting for my Sunday Lunch diners to go and the evening shift to arrive.

As an atheist (seems like there's a lot of us here) I see 25 Dec just like any other day so I don't see the need to charge 4 times as much for Christmas lunch as I would for Sunday lunch.

So it's (more or less) the same price for (more or less) the same meal, well, except there's turkey and sausages wrapped in bacon and sprouts and bread sauce.

Not many takers yet, seems like most people believe you should get ripped off.
