    Eeep, huge ass candles, looks scary.. They're real right?
  9. Glyph

    Glyph Fledgling Freddie

    Better keep an eye on them then, and keep some water close just in case :p

    It might be less charming, but electrical candles are a lot more practical and safe imo ;)

    They go out by themselves, so its very safe.

    We always light them just before unwrapping the presents (we do that in the evening in denmark), then we sit around and unwrap and talk until the lights goes out...then ppl go to bed or to their computer ;)

    Hmmm, we always did it in the evening of the 25th, nerf :(
    I'm not sure when most people do the presents thing here in the Netherlands, not everybody even does presents, because we have Sinterklaas on the 5th of December.
    That's pretty much the origin of Santa Claus and Christmas presents anyway, maybe combined with Chanoeka.

    Sinterklaas=Dutch custom. An old man rides on his horse over the roofs with his Black Minions, handing out presents to all the good kids and the bad kids he puts in his sack and takes wif him to Madrid, Spain :eek: Anyway, tis on the 5th of December, so loads of parents just skip Christmas pressies.

    Aye, and Chanukah is an old Jewish custom where everybody gives eachother gifts, also around Christmas time.

    I have started my own personal custom.

    Everything that smells of chocolate gets opened (and quite possibly consumed) on Christmas Eve..the rest gets opened Christmas Day morning.
