Which brainiac thought that one up, switching on the lights in November, on a work,/school night at 6pm? Not only did it add to the already chaotic rush hour traffic, (35 minutes to get from Rockingham Street to old Mill lane) but it was done too early. There are 12 days of Christmas and not one of them is in November. By the time Christmas comes I'm long past fed up of the constant exhortations to spend what I don't have on things I don't want or need and that my family already has enough of. No doubt come January 1St the easter eggs will appear. Ba f*****g humbug!
