It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Not usually one to get too bothered by the Christmas period (or "holidays" as they insist on calling it here for fear that it may be misinterpreted as, y'know, a religious thing - trust me the Christ side of things sold out to big business years ago) I've been surprisingly taken aback by how willing I've been to embrace the spirit of the festivities. My roommate can be held largely responsible as he came back from Thanksgiving and began immediately to Christmas-ify the old homestead.

It's hard to be a miserable fecka in the presence in a room taken over by Christmas lights and containing not one but TWO! Christmas trees. But he didn't stop there. Oh no no no no (ho ho ho ho ho). Next we get a wreath on the door.
Somewhat impractical it may be argued but doesn't it look nice. And it's very real too. i have pine needles bloody everywhere to prove it. So all this stuff helped get me into the spirit of the season but if it wasn't enough.......
Snow! Yes we've all seen it before and apparently you all had loads more than this at home but still this place doesn't half look purdy under a blanket of white powder.

Here is essentially the same picture but taken at night so you can see the lights on the Christmas tree.
