        When we were in Scotland 2 weeks ago Doobies garden centre outside Ayr had christmas cards in. Our local newsagent has put advent calendars on his shelf.I told him off.

                  One can walk past Christmas displays with eyes averted but it's the background music I hate and all the chemical smells of so called pot pourri etc.

                    I was going to say that. Yuck! I was going to go and get my onion sets this week. Do I need to take my swimming earplugs and noseclips??

                        Anybody have instructions on making Holly Wreaths or when the best time is to pick them? I noticed one bush already has red berries on my walk to the store.

                          Marigold, I'd say you might be a bit early yet, as the holly will have withered away in 15.5 weeks.

                          But now is probably a good time to try and get nice bendy branches to make the basic framework for a wreath to add sprays of holly to in a couple of months time.

                          I haven't noticed any displays over here yet (although someone told me that the display is out in the shop my FIL works in, so I must ask him to get me a small fake tree when he gets back from his summer hols - which I am going to put in the holiday house we are renting for Christmas!!).

                          I love the Christmas prep and am well started myself, but I am another person who really hates to see the commercial bits of Christmas in the stores this early.
