Warning: Explosion Imminent

30 Nov

File:Arbol Navidad 03.gif

To those of my readers who don’t celebrate Christmas, I’d like to apologise in advance for December. 

Scrooges, look away now.

I love Christmas.

You have been warned.

What to expect from The Laughing Housewife in December:

  • A decorated blog
  • Christmas jokes
  • Christmas cartoons
  • Christmas stories
  • Christmas pictures
  • Christmas anecdotes
  • A lot of posts about Christmas
  • A lot of re-posts about Christmas (including this one)
  • A lot of giddiness on my part
  • A lot of lists (some naughty, some nice)
  • A list of lots of things to do, mostly involving wine and hysteria, though not necessarily in that order
  • A lot of posts which include the word ‘panic’ – it’s one day to Christmas month and I still have to find 25 Christmas jokes, Christmas cartoons, Christmas stories, Christmas pictures and Christmas anecdotes
  • Red and green fonts

If this has come as a surprise to you, then it’s clear you haven’t read my About page: 

Christmas and Maltesers must be done to excess; everything else is showing off.

I’ve just made a connection!  Christmas is red; Maltesers are red – I’m not a greedy pig when I eat seven boxes of Maltesers: I’m re-living Christmas. 

Now pass me a bucket; I feel a bit green.

    Lists and wine I like. As for the panicking, I’ll be doing that right along with you!

    I am crazy about Christmas too Tilly – can’t believe it is nearly here!


  5. sharechair November 30, 2012 at 12:03 #

    this is good. I need the cheer. I find Christmas a bit overwhelming. So much to do! I enjoy the holiday, but the prep is a killer. I look to you to get me through!

    Gift giving this year is easy. I am giving Indian silk scarves and neck ties. Wish I had bought more!

    Hooray, another Christmas with Tilly! Whenever I feel a little bit Scroogish, your posts put me back into the lovely Christmacy frame of mind and spirit.


  11. adinparadise November 30, 2012 at 15:11 #

    I’ll still visit you, Tilly. Maybe your enthusiasm will rub off on me. 🙂

    Communists are also red and they don’t celebrate Christmas.

    Have you figured out how to upload photos yet?? Love your Christmas list. Dianne

    Let me see if I understand this right. Are you trying to say you like Christmas? Try not to be so obscure in future posts.


  14. Rorybore November 30, 2012 at 16:54 #

    this makes me Merry!
    the “Bright” is debatable 😉


  15. Musings November 30, 2012 at 18:27 #

    I do enjoy the holidays too so please go write (misspelled on purpose) ahead and enjoy Christmas! I’m afraid I’m not quite in gear from the holidays yet. Somehow my engine is stalled.

    I am prepared to be “Over-Christmased”

    Yes, I like December for the decorations. I have my blog to decorate, which will be done soon, but then, I’ll have to redecorate it for my End of the World party ( 😉 ), and then I’ll have to redecorate it for Christmas again. And then, Tilly, it’s the new year. Where has this year gone?

    i love Christmas as far as the true meaning and family get together, but the prices that increase through the holidays is spoiling it

    Huzzah! My tree is up tomorrow! Time for the Hoidays Are Coming Coke Ad…

    Mom got drunk and dad got drunk…Merry Christmas from the family.


  22. Three Well Beings December 1, 2012 at 07:40 #

    I love Christmas, too! I’ll be very eager to play along! It’s December 1st! Ready, set, GO!


  23. Pseu December 1, 2012 at 09:55 #

    I’m looking forward to all those delicious Christmas recipes….


  24. Janie Jones December 3, 2012 at 00:02 #

    Love the holiday look! BTW, any idea what happened to the snow feature?


  25. vivinfrance December 3, 2012 at 20:50 #

    Wot no presents (in your list)? I don’t know where to start, as I’m all behind 😦 🙂 Cake made and fed with booze. Everything else still to do.

    I look forward to the end of it… 😉


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
