1st December = advent. My limited understanding of religion is that is the proper lead in to Christmas.
Of course whether NTHW wants a Christmas theme is another matter. Usually I try to think of the clan as a democracy. But sometimes it's necessary to impose my will. Plus I was bored
And everyone has the ability to select their own theme if they don't like it : Profile > Look and Layout.
It's fine MGP, I just dislike the way Christmas is hyped up and by default I grump at stuff to do with it.
I particulalry hate the advertising on TV, which all goes along the lines of:
"Buy your crap with us, or your Christmas will be a disaster" - or at least that's the underlying pschological message they are putting over.
