There are some things in life that everybody holds strong opinions about. Marmite for example. Or Kim Kardashian. Certain subjects seem to divide opinion and have the power to break relationships, sabotage friendships and demolish casual acquaintances. It has come to our attention that Christmas is one such subject. You never hear anyone say ‘oh it’s okay I guess’, or ‘I don’t really mind it’. It’s either ‘IT’S NOVEMBER, GET THE TINSEL, WHERE’S THE TINSEL?!’ or ‘URGH, why is this Pogues song playing already’.
A clear divide in the nation has become apparent. It’s split opinion so much, that people are now even beginning to resort to festive slander.

Vs. the ones who think it’s too early
It’s only acceptable to mention the ‘C’ word once all other seasonal events have passed. #NotReady.

The ones who really embrace the decorations
There’s no such thing as ‘too much’ when it comes to Christmas.
Vs the ones who couldn’t care less
A tree is a tree.
The ones who go crazy for advent calendars
Yankee anyone? Because the December countdown is the most fun part and must be savoured one window at a time.
And the ones that just go down the pound shop
….And then eat the chocolates in the wrong order on the wrong days. You know who you are.
Christmas eve is just TOO MUCH for some…
IT’S ALMOST HEREEEE!
…whilst others do their best to feign excitement
Yeah sure, Christmas. Ha.
The ones who get the xmas jumpers out ASAP
As soon as November hits, it’s TOTALLY okay to whack out the xmas threads.
And the ones who have to be forced to wear them
Really? Another wear a festive jumper to work day? Do I have to?
At least the lovers and the haters all have one thing in common….
