    Wow, a Leo sighting in the Bar.

    @stegs: You should get her to come in the Bar more.

    Happy Thanksgiving, Bar!

    That would be weird if Mrs stegs came to the bar.

    I consider any tone after Thanksgiving to be fair game for Christmas decorations.

    So, in America, there is this thing we have called Black Friday. I'm sure most of you have heard of it, but if not, allow me to explain. What used to be a simple day of busy Xmas shopping (and always the day after Thanksgiving which is the last Thursday of November) has turned into utter chaos, madness, and death for some. I'm not kidding. People are so nuts to get that new console that they will trample some people to death to get it. As a kid, I remember stores opening up at five or six in the morning on Friday but as I have gotten older, it's been earlier and earlier. Last year for big retailers (Wal-Mart, Target, Toys R Us) it was... 9 PM or 10 THURSDAY, Thanksgiving Day. This year it is 8 PM. and the commercials for Black Friday are so freaking annoying.

    My questions to people living in other countries:

    1.) Do y'all have something similar to this? Like, busiest shopping day of the year for Christmas or any other holiday?
    2.) If so, is it as nuts there as it is in America?

    Another question pertaining to the winter holidays...

    3.) When do the Christmas/Other Holiday decorations start showing up? End of October, November, December?
    1) Not really. Sure there's days that are more crowded because of holiday shopping, but nothing like a black friday. And if there was i'd make sure i'd do my shopping on a different day.
    2) We're not nearly as nuts as you Americans
    3) It seems like it's getting earlier every year. It used to be like kamap says wait until after sinterklaas with the x-mas decorations, but now more and more people start before that. Accidentally i saw the first decorated house yesterday and on tv i saw a couple that did that a couple of weeks ago. Same goes with the sinterklaas festivities, that also seems to start earlier every year.

    I think we're putting up the tree in December.

    I probably won't put up the tree until December, but I'll probably put lights on the house today.

    Crested gecko. Not sure of the morph or sex yet, difficult to tell this young (3 months). Named after, well, don't suppose I need to tell you, I'm just used to blank expressions

    Generally they aren't so good with handling (that's more bearded dragons and leopard geckos), but Tyrael loves it. Plays hide and seek and makes me chase her to get her out, but then refuses to go back in^^
