    Allowing two weeks to put lights up, and two to take them down, what do the trucks from “The Christmas Lightening Co” do for the other 48 weeks of the year?

    Every home in the country is to be charged €300 a year by a new quango called Irish Christmas Lights. Apparently, the Christmas Lights service has been deteriorating over many years now with increasingly pisspoor displays blighting towns across the State, it needs capital investment and the government wants to keep it off balance sheet. And if you want to have a first class Christmas Light service in this country, you need to pay for it. Welcome to Christmas Light Charges.

        Next, you’ll be complaining at subsidising Dinny’s 10,000 sq ft gaff on Shewsbury Road by paying the exact same water charge as the Digicel tycoon with 50 crappers, 50 bidets and an Olympic swimming pool (or bath as he calls it) – that’s not how the world works.

      Ah now. I just think of them as “Winter Lights”, definitely welcome on these cold, wet, miserable nights heading home from work :o)

      Christmas *shops* on the other hand can ask me gowl ’til December 1st, mind.

        It’s meant to be cold, wet and miserable. It’s winter in Ireland. We wouldn’t even be outdoors if it weren’t for the North Atlantic drift. F**k load of difference a bit of plastic tat is goin to make. Christmas pints on the other hand…

    Christmas season should start on 1st December (8th if you’re a culchie) and every shop, business that advertises before then should be told to F***K off!

      Never understood why it can’t be legislated until at least after the 31st of October. Anyone that desperate to get in on the consumerism will be ready anyway, the rest of us don’t want to have to look at it for 3 months. I’m actually looking forward to coming back to Ireland in late-November as I won’t have to endure a premature Christmas.

      I can’t wait for the Christmas songs on the radio too, just for extra jolliness.
      Over and over and over.. cause you just can’t get enough of them, year in, year out.

    I heard some of the water tax revenue is redirected to pay for the utilities these lights use.

    i just want to be the first to say it this year – santy is a pr1ck. i hope the brakes on his sled fail and the reindeer get dysentery. i hope that all children of the world stop believing in him all at once and he disappears up his hairy hole. i hope he picks up ebola and infects all of his little elves in the north pole and we can be finally free of this christmas nonsense.
