Call me Scrooge, but I think it's immoral and in bad taste to start talking about Christmas (and Hogfather) before Halloween! Bah! Humbug!

And don't forget that Hogswatch is on the 27th November!

I hope you've all sent off your Secret Hogfather presents! :shock:

I have to, I'm the Santa for the local charity street collection, we have to do all our planning months in advance to get permits, vehicles etc.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

:lol: It's holiday season overload over here. People start celebrating Halloween as soon as October starts, then you also have Thanksgiving in November. The elections are coming up early next month and then there's Veterans Day - not to mention my birthday and Sharlene's all before Hogswatch. :lol:

Ah huh! So that is why American people say 'happy holidays'. It has nothing to do with the secularisation of Christmas but an effficient means of communication!

I work with somone who comes originally from Texas and every year he tells me in November that as it is Turkey day he shouldn't be at work at all - whenever that is.

Why pumpkins? What do they have to do with all Hallow's eve? And do DW fans dress up as DW characters over there?
