Xmas season is open

by Volker Weber


Today I received my first Christmas present. The season is now officially open. I don't know about your country, but here it is quite common to have a calendar with small treats that counts down the 24 days in december until Christmas' Eve. This one from Thomas Radigewski claims to be the smallest such calendar. That is a bit like claiming you have the world's largest Bonsai. :-)

Last year we received quite a few cards. I am a bit old-fashioned and really, really like it when people send me Christmas cards. Quite some companies have cut back on them, and I think this is money saved in the wrong place, or as we say "at the wrong end".


Regarding the last statement, is it you speaking as a consumer or as a journalist?

One of my recent favorites was AT&T rock candy...I love lollies and rock candy never ceases to fascinate me.

The rock did however pale in comparison to the outdoor furniture they gave me a couple of years earlier...

Oh, and the fancy cheeses they couriered that didn't get discovered until my return two weeks later! :(
