    We had them but they were strictly rationed,helping yourself to more than one was forbidden.
    Actually,helping yourself was forbidden full stop.

    I can't remember what our biccie barrel looked like;what I do remember is a huge upturn in our biscuit fortunes when my mother got a job cleaning a deli.
    At the time it was the only place in town that sold Fox's biscuits and her staff discount meant we could pig out on chocolate orange creams every week.

    Kids these days don't know they're born with all these fancy biscuits.
    Sweets too.
    I remember 'sweet night'. On the day my dad got paid each week, he would bring us home a bar of chocolate or bag of sweets each. We never knew what we'd get and it would be really exciting.

    Even now when I eat a chocolate digestive a little pang of childhood guilt that I'm so so lucky to be eating it kicks in...it takes about 8 for the feeling to disappear

    A sweet for us was nicking a sugarlump from the canteen me ole nan used to work in

    Sugarlumps were a source of great excitement in our house.

    My main problem is my older children. They all have far more money to spend than I do so can buy stuff if they need it.

    I still do them all a stocking though, even the 3 that no longer live at home

    That's the problem with Mr kas's parents;they're loaded and don't need anything.They don't really drink,hardly eat and neither of them have any hobbies.

    They sound awfully boring.

    They need livening up.

    Buy them a parrot that's already schooled in repetition of a variety of rude words.

    I don't envisage having that problem with Mr Shiny's dad.
    It looks like he will still be around by Christmas, but is already talking about getting somewhere as far away from everyone as possible for the Christmas period.
    I now know where Mr Shiny gets his bah humbug attitude from.

    The shock would probably kill them;I don't think either of them have ever uttered a rude word in their lives.

    Mrs Diddler's parents were the same. Her dad would get up and turn off the telly if some actor/personality said anything disgraceful like '******.'

    I hate Christmas, this year will be ace as we get the magic back with our granddaughter living with us however the rest of it is just a pointless pile of ****.

    Iíve told all my family not to bother this year and weíre not buying anything either, and as for cards weíre making a charity donation; Iím 48 I honestly canít be arsed with pretending itís some *********** joyous family gathering because itís not.

    My perfect Christmas would be me on my own with the Back to the Future trilogy, a curry and a can of red bull.

    I love it too, especially the whole build up from now. It's just the youngest daughter at home now and she will almost certainly be at uni next year, so I'm gonna really make the most of it all this year.

    Gifting and all that, its all just part of a sales gimmick.. I'd rather wait until after Christmas, and buy myself what I might want, when the food/clothing/things are at real discount prices. That way, I feel I don't miss out on anything..
