Hi everyone! How are you doing today?

 

Christmas is approaching fast! smiling

 

We'd love to see all the community members talking about lots of things related to this holiday period. We will be posting a discussion topic on this board every day from today onwards to celebrate 12 Days of Christmas.

 

Each topic will ask a question about your views/experiences related to this holiday. The last topic will be posted on Christmas Day, 25th of December.

 

Additionally... to get you into the Christmas spirit, we've decided to give one random lucky participant in each of our 12 Days of Christmas topics a little present from us: £15 Amazon voucher! smiling

We will announce the winners in the Christmas Day topic. If you win, you will also get a PM (private message here on the forum) from us with your gift voucher code.

 

Note that the competition is now closed, but feel free to still take part in the below discussions about the holiday period. Smiley Happy

Well, if it was up to me I'd hook up everything on an RGB controller and let rip with some seizure inducing colour changes. 

Something like this behind the tree.

Unfortunately tho the missus don't let me near the lights or tree... Dunno why.

Re: 12 Days of Christmas: Decoration Ideas!

My friends came to visit on Monday and they adorned my wheelchair ♿ with silver, red and gold tinsel with a single gold star on top of the IV holder rod. Very festive 🎅🎅🎅

Everyone is very impressed but it feels a little strange going to the cafe or shop with all of them staring. Some of the comments make me smile ☺ Someone even asked where my reindeer where as I was struggling up a ramp 🤣

Rubbish picture but this was part of the decorations last year. As you can see I love lights. Had I taken more photos you would have seen even more lights! (in the porch, conservatory and garden)

This year as we will be out a lot, we haven't put up the tree. Still got lots of lights though...Hero

I believe airlines had to warn their pilots they weren't acting as landing strip lights.....

joy Well that made me laugh. Other half said he didn't want to see the electricity bill when it came. I replied he hadn't seen that bill for 40 years so nothing new there then Smiley Tongue
