Christmas thread free for all

Recommended Posts

Time to go out with a bang.

Let's go with one last Christmas thread from hell.  Give us your xmas opinions and we'll all snipe good naturedly at each other one last time.  Lie if you need to, it will make it more fun.

 

I think everyone should do the Santa thing and buy so many presents their children get lost under them.  Buy all the consumer plastic crap even unto ruination of your budget and your children.  Forget batteries - let the kids learn delayed gratification on christmas because every day is a teachable moment.  Don't invite people you don't like, even if they are your parents. Let the cat climb the christmas tree and pull it over - why should your children have all the fun?

And you're all doing it wrong if you don't do it exactly like me.

All year I've been visualizing a soccer ball sized coronavirus hanging decoration in red and green. ''Tis the season to be trolleyed.

i *kind of* steered my younger DS away from asking probing santa questions last year because i wanted one more year of the santa magic (for me, not him) - he knows now, the same way most kids found out - a kid at school told him!

jelly doesn’t belong in trifles.

Yes, that's it. It's certainly contemporary 😄

I'm telling my child Santa has covid and will be isolating this Christmas. It might be a good way to kill him off for good? Just say in future years they are ghosts. What does everyone think?

:o Dead to me. Jelly, cake, tinned fruit, custard and whipped cream all belong in trifle, plus booze if you like booze. That's all that should be in it.

BadCat: Can you please write us one last EB Christmas poem? I remember that you wrote an epic one way back when I was new to EB, and I loved it. 

I still have a Christmas decoration up from last year.

I usually go over board at Christmas. This year I am planning a Christmas Extravaganza. Glitter and tinsel everywhere

Jelly in trifle is a banning offense!

I’ve never had a Christmas trifle without jelly! Is it a bogan thing? Because that would make sense in my case 😂

For my trifle, I boil pitted cherries in sugar syrup and when they are cooked and cooled I add gelatine and pour that over savoiardi fingers so it sets in the biscuits. Does that count as jelly?

My grandma's sherry soaked trifle always had jelly in it and she always baked from stratch the sponge cake.  She was definitely not bogan.  Us kids probably got drunk on that trifle at Christmas. She also made christmas cake with suet and a plum duff wrapped in calico. She was the queen of cooking.  All good memories are of her kitchen table and afternoon teas.

I love jelly, custard, fruit and cream more than life itself but having the sherry soaked sponge with it is always gross.

Lemon and blueberry trifle is pretty good though.

Its the soggy sponge that I can't stand, the rest together would be perfectly fine :)

The worst trifle I have tasted - shop sponge cake, pourable custard, jelly, sherry, whipped canned cream.

Couldn't pay me to eat that again. Everyone was raving about how good it was and I'm looking at the dog, wondering if she would like a Christmas treat.

How very dare you.  Christmas cake/Wedding cake is an essential part of Christmas.

This reminds me of the trifle making episode in friends!

Why is it you can’t find tinned peach halves? I live for peaches with cranberry sauce in them at Christmas
