    I like the splash of color on my old black-and-white avatar...

    ...maybe I should colorize the whole thing... :hhhmmm

    The color would be nice, but I think that it would be like Michael Strahan (US football player... google him) getting the gap between his tooth fixed. It's your trademark, no need to mess with success! haha...

    In case you were talking about REAL christmas decorations, the little fibre optic tree we have here is still up. Don't know when it will be taken down, but it don't bother me! The worst I ever saw was a little santa sleigh outside someones window in JUNE. Yea... someone got lazy!

    On another note, I think I've been in Australia for too long. I'm starting to switch letters on some words like my aussie counterparts: fiber -> fibre, center -> centre. AH... I hear them chanting now...

    ONE OF US... ONE OF US! :twisted:

    Nah, you're just learning how to write and spell properly. :twisted:

    No worries. :thumbleft


    Mike, around here we traditionally leave them up until "drei königs tag" or otherwise known as Epiphany, which happens to be on the 6th of January. MY wife will be taking them down this weekend. :biggrin

    Yes yes... we americans have butchered the queen's english, I know, I know. The most australian you'll see me be is drinking some of the beers like cascade, boags, and my fave Jim Squire. It reminds me of the Sam Adams brand that we have back in the states.

    Icon looks good... what did you color it with?

    Much as I like decorations in the run up to xmas, when it's all over they look a little sad and I can't wait to get rid of them.

    We usually take them down the first day the kids are back in school to spare them the heartache.

    @BosonMichael
    Love the new avatar with a bit of colour (the ONLY way to spell the word.. :D )


    As for real decorations, my missus has a habit of getting them up really early (like November, which is just wrong in my opinion) but gets annoyed with them so takes them down like the 26/12/10 (Again, the ONLY way to do the date :D )
