One reason to think about Christmas now

Yuck Christmas is already in the shops - I love the celebrations around that time of year but why can't we keep it to December?

Mind, if you have family or friends abroad, as pointed out by a Transition Stroud member, and want your cards / gifts to travel on a boat rather than burning up precious air miles, you need to plan ahead. Some examples of last posting dates by surface are:
for Jamaica 1/10/08
for USA & Canada 20/10/08
for most of Europe 24/11/08
