Is the second week of January still the season to be jolly?

Postby Stifler's Uncle Bob » 15 Jan 2013, 08:32

It's five to ten, Sunday morning, 13 January 2013 and I'm standing in Norfolk Street waiting for a particular shop to open. Looking up and down the street it immediately struck me that the towns Christmas street lights were all still up!!! And, it's not just Norfolk Street, but the High Street and the Vancouver Centre too...

What is it with those no-name knuckle-heads at our local council? Can't they even mobilise their resources to take down their own Christmas decorations on or before twelth night? They are, quite frankly, an embarrassment.

Bah-Humbug? Not one bit, Snake. I love Christmas as much as the next man.

What I don't like the lackadaisical, couldn't give a sh*t, we'll do it tomorrow, laissez-faire, any old thing will do attitude so often exhibited by our local council. If you're slack about stuff like this - the simple things - you've got no bloody chance of do the more difficult stuff.

I work in Manachester and stay in Wilmslow mid-week and the local council there was out in the first week of January taking down all the lights from lamp-posts, trees and buildings, etc. Clearly, their council in Cheshire can do it. Why can't ours? AND THAT, PUT SIMPLY, IS THE POINT I AM MAKING - SO FORGET THE BAH-HUMBUG CR*P.

When I next see the contractor that put them up again, (a friend of mine) I will ask him
why they are still there. Funny old bit of trivia to get het up about though.
I do not want thanks for any research I am able to help out with. I just love doing it.

I agree. I still think they look lovely though :D
