    You think, this is a little village called Tovil in Kent from 6 years ago, it gets worse (and I do mean worse) there every year......maybe if Richard is passing he could get a picture of this years monstrosity for us!

    I'll bear that n mind Gabriel. Near us, at Cator Park, 2 or 3 home owners must have had a competition with one another resulting in displays which rival Blackpool! My concern was that these houses are under an approach to Heathrow Ho Ho Ho

    Hi all. I'm in Australia however European in upbringing so I have kept the Xmas tradition I had when I grew up.
    We have a wonderful breakfast on 24 th and we spend the day together. We have a beautiful cold dinner, prawns, crays, crabs, chicken, ham and salads with desert. Then at about 8.30 we hand out and open the presents. My kids are nearly 20 and 15 and they still like a little something from Santa so I put some small treats in their stockings for Xmas morning.
    Not only do we love it, but it frees us up for the in laws on 25 th and other family on 26 th. it's great Xmas lasts for 3 days in our house.

    A mistake is simply another way of doing things.

    What a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas and to have it stretch for 3 days is such a bonus. I just love having all the family together for Christmas and catching up with other extended family you don't get to see that often. Have a wonderful Christmas this year from another Aussie!

    I'd like to echo that. Christmas is a time for family and friends.

    When I was a kid, we would open our presents on the 25th, mid morning. However, my wife's tradition is to open presents on the 24th.

    For most of my life, the 26th has been the day when we visit family, or have family and friends round.

    I have taken the following from a Facebook page ....

    You know you're from Kent when ....

    1.
    You visit Tovil every year to laugh at the tacky Christmas lights. In October.

    2.
    You know exactly where a giant flower-covered sheep can be found at any one given time.
    I note there are images of the decorations from 2005 on-line.

    Yes, we have 2 or 3 houses in Yeovil that do this for charity. There was one in my local town which collected for charity as their little girl was severely disabled but the little girl died and I don't think they live there anymore. When I go shopping I will take some photos.

    We try to be completely finished by Thanksgiving. We're about a week behind this year.
