Pilots right. Looking forward to the easter eggs in the shops...... What's that ?????? they're already in the shops........Well I never. :roll:
We don't let the grass grow under our feet over here, memor. :wink:
They haven't quite put the Easter eggs on the shelves but if the hot cross buns are here, can the eggs be far behind?

I thought Xmas was to celebrate the birth of Christ, the date of which is disputed, if such a person existed in the first place, many factions of Christianity think the date is around the 6th or 7th January, but it was convenient to take over the celebration of mid winter.
he was born under the Hebrew calendar, therefore his birthday would be on a different date every year on our calendar..

the jewish year is shorter than ours by around 10 days, but, their leap year which is apparently every 2 or 3 years is longer than our year by around 20 days, because they actually add in a 13th month, weird eh.

Listen up, you're apparently all well behind the times. Good grief, still talking about Christmas. Haven't you lot even noticed-the hot cross bun displays have hit the supermarkets already.
Yes, folks, we're officially in the lead up to Easter. :lol:
You're kidding me aren't you?

I put up a tree one Christmas, didn't bother to take it down for 2.5 years.

Bad luck to take your tree or decorations down before then. Well known fact. :D
Besides, you've got to get mileage out of all the work putting them up in the first place.

And no, gnads, I wasn't kidding. They're here!
