Countdown to Christmas 2020

Brought to you by John Lewis

Christmas pudding sales are up 75%

Really want to know who is buying Christmas puddings in July.


4 months today!

Covid is a nice excuse for me to sack off seeing extended family this year

yeah thats weird. Making your own… fair as you need to soak it n that but buying one… theres always loads :confused:

could go a mince pie to be honest


The best bit about Xmas is all the boozy pub meet ups after work with pals. Sad that won’t be the same this year

Took my Christmas tree down the tip the other week, that’s how festive this year’s is going to be. (Also I asked the tip woman which bit I should put it in and she managed to steer the conversation to telling me she doesn’t believe in Covid without me saying a word, it was so wild)

Christmas puddings are shit.

Just eaten the biggest main course of the year. You know what I fancy? The heaviest, stodgiest pudding going. FO, M.


Based on the last few years they’ll be in most supermarkets within two weeks.

I only count in sleeps

do you include naps in this…?

This is why I like to have Bombay potatoes and Dal for Christmas dinner and a Yule log for afters

Sleeps equal to or over 150 minutes ONLY

Haven’t even started shopping yet. I’m such a last-minute person!

Just remembered the guy in our London office who has the year-round countdown board, sad I won’t get to see that at all this year :frowning:

No office parties though so, every cloud.



in exactly 4 months time youll be…

  • sleeping
  • eating
  • drinking
  • watching TV
  • opening presents
  • arguing
  • sat in an empty room staring at a blank wall

desperate attempt to boost sales & get ahead of the competition

The people buying Christmas puddings in July btw are the video directors of targeted Christmas #1 singles that are all written & recorded in June + the directors of TV Christmas ads of course

which reminds me that my TV once had to style a photoshoot for a Parisian shopping centre’s Halloween campaign, which they shot in March. Do you know how difficult it is to get a pumpkin in March?!

You know how MOTs got put back by 6 months? Well mine’s due on Christmas day now.

That’s all I’ve got to add.
