Do you enjoy them or avoid them at all costs? Have they gone dramatically wrong or just plain boring? I've never encountered one where anyone has been sacked but you always hear all the stories
A few years ago I used to love them, but my team changed, my hours changed and now I just couldn't...
Has anyone ever done it? It’s starting to look like I may have to this year and I feel physically sick at the thought of it. I’m already crying and anytime I see anything Christmas related I want to curl into a ball and not wake up. Please help.
Yesterday was a long day and my heart hurts.
My friend died almost three years ago just before christmas.
If I’m being honest I already don’t have a lot of friends, the people i’m closest to now are actually my 3 siblings and another person I meet up with every two weeks or so.
I try to buy all my gifts from small UK-based businesses. I have a few tough-to buy-for people and I end up wandering virtually around masses of small stores looking for inspiration.
I wondered if we could all share our small business recommendations?
Also this could be a place to ask whether...
I'm going all mumsnet now 😅
Do you have a budget for Christmas?
A friend of a friend spends £200 for 4 children and 2 x grandparents an I can't get my head round it, I need to know what she's buying!!
This isn't to shame anyone on, im just interested.
Just been having a thought about this after having an Amazon splurge on family kids!
Just bought all the xmas presents for our nieces and nephews. 7 of them, I usually spend a tenner a kid (I sort the kids presents, the husband does the adult family secret santa, the budget is usually about...
So sorry to spring the C bomb on you all in August but given the absolute dire situation we are all finding ourselves in with the cost of living crisis I thought we could maybe discuss ideas on how to crunch the cost down to still have a Christmas within all of our means.
I am not usually very...
I’m lacking a bit of inspiration at the moment and I’m thinking of jetting off somewhere hot over Christmas this year - I’m thinking Thailand. However I would be travelling alone as a lot of my friends don’t want to go away for Christmas.
Does anyone have any tips on where to go, any...
Nobody suggested a thread title so I used a comment instead. Credit to @simbi123
Full comment was "£1000 on her important charity project, £3000 on ugly christmas decorations that last a month"

I know it's ages away, but we are hosting Christmas this year and I have to start planning now.
In the past, we've mostly gone to one of my SiL's as she has lots of kids and had a large house at the time; but now she's moved into a smaller house and her kids have flown the nest. When we went...
I want all the details! 😂😂
What are you doing right now, what are you eating on Christmas Eve night!
Who are you fighting with,
Have you got any pressies yet!
Have you binned the elf and left Christmas boxes out.
Are you wearing tragic Christmas PJ’s
Are you still sober….
TELL ME EVERYTHING!
I don't know if it's just me but I love knowing what people have got for Christmas and also what they have got others, so thought we could all share!
I've got my dad an Apple Watch and I am SO excited to gift it to him. He's wanted one for so long but hasn't had the money so can't wait to spoil...
Just making a separate thread for all of us that have tested positive in the last week or so and now Christmas is ruined 🤦🏼♀️.
How’s everyone feeling?
I’m on day 3 and have no smell or taste, my head feels like cotton wool and I can’t hear a thing!
Has your family come down with...
I think it's late enough to get in the Christmas mood, what are your favourite Christmas songs?
I'll start with an underated song by a very handsome man ( and cute dog)!
then many people's favourite

Poll results 📊
A whopping jollopping 83% voted to shag rooting tooting Tone’s personality in Mason’s body. Quite frankly, that was the worst poll choice in 55 threads 🤣
⚽️ Tony was hot topic once again. We all know my feelings on Tone and his nips 😍. If I don’t watch myself I’ll be starting...
How much do you spend? Do you budget? Do you go all out?
I've been gradually shopping for Christmas since August and just finished this month, and have probably spent about £350 on my daughter this year.
But that doesn't include all the extras that come with Christmas nowadays - Christmas...
Read an article this week about a woman who is fuming because her mother in law has charged her for Christmas Dinner.
It made me smile, because we do the same - in a round about way. Whoever is hosting does the food shop, tells the rest of us how much it was and we split it between us. No...
