As you predicted I have not much time to be creative. So I post this picture that I use as a Xmas card. As a bit of useless info the following. The Postmen in the 1800 wore red, because that was a royal colour, that is why the postboxes got the royal red colour as well. The postmen were nicknamed robins for the red colour. At Christmas people eagerly awaited the arrival of the Robin to deliver their Christmas cards. People started to put Robins on their Christmas cards as the deliverer of the cards. This took off in a big way and is still used today.

Men leave the shopping, for the girlfriend's present to the last minute. So, in a panic, they buy perfume as a safe bet.  :P

This was taken on Christmas Eve. There were more men in the shot on Friday 23rd if I had taken it, but the two security guards standing either side of me stopped me from getting my camera out!  ::)
