We have under 6 hours to go, Downunder. including Kiwis.

It could be interesting if all join in and add to the countdown from their own Countries, just to show the massively different Time Zones that Bleeping Computer Members live in.

I look forward to wishing everyone Merry Christmas when it hits here.

:thumbsup: :flowers:

Eleven hours to go here in New Jersey, on the east coast of the US -- where, thanks to an unusually ambitious snow storm last Sunday, we'll be having our first "white Christmas" in a long time. At least until the predicted rains wash it away.

In a few hours I'll be trucking the wife and kids up the highway to get together with my brothers, sisters, and parents.



Happy holidays to all!

The Christmas countdown started 4 days before Halloween in Costco this year. Next year I expect it to start around Easter. :thumbsup:

:thumbsup: thats nothing the Christmas adverts started here between late September to early October at least for a company called Glade, they showed an advert of a normal product they sell then just after that a "why not go all christmassy with...." (and what ever smell it was)

Other companies didn't take long after that Glade advert to start putting there own out, by mid October I'm sure there was about 4-5 Christmas adverts, Shops started rearranging around Halloween here as well to move Christmas stuff in.

Just 2 hours 4 minutes and 50 seconds till Christmas day here, got to be exact :trumpet:.

It is 7:40 PM here in the tiny State of Rhode Island. I have some new music that I downloaded to my music file (Dave Brubeck's "Time Out" and some vintage Stan Getz) and a bottle of "Pusser's Rum"; the same rum that was issued to the Royal Navy for the past 300 years.

Merry Christmas!!!!

Just got back from the Christmas Eve family get together. The kids only just got to bed. Christmas is about 2 minutes away.

The kids will be up in 5 hours or so, a few boxes will be demolished, then off to my sisters for more extended family time!



I didn't have to host or cook for any of the holidays this year! :thumbsup:
