For me, Christmas has now begun.|
I was in Ito-Yokado, with my mother-in-law, shopping for pants and socks for my wife (don't ask...) when they started playing "Merry Christmas Everybody" by Slade - weird, because it's an unknown song in Japan, they then moved onto "Last Christmas" by Wham, also unknown, which makes me suspect they bought licensed their Christmas music from a foreign company.
Anyway, much as they say "the show isn't over 'til the fat lady sings", for British people Christmas hasn't begun 'til Noddy Holder has shouted "It's Chriiiiistmaaaas!!"
Perhaps not a very interesting anecdote, but there you go.
