What you can do:

Getting festive on the community

You may have noticed that many of us have changed our profile pictures to something festive, so please feel free to do the same :) 

You can use a website such as FACEinHOLE to insert your face into a Christmassy photo, expertly (:D) edit your own face into a photo like I did, or just upload your favourite a Christmas scene or character! If you encounter any problems changing your profile picture, just let us know. 

Do you have a favourite Christmas jumper? Will you be changing your profile picture?

    I always thought a Christmas jumper was a bit extravagant - £15 odd for something that you can only wear for a couple of weeks of the year - but then remembered how much people spend on other things like a tree, decorations, lights etc and it doesn’t seem too bad. Maybe I will get one :)

    I got a cheap one years ago that I still wear every year @66Mustang. The good thing about not wearing it for very long is that it means they tend to last longer!

    I've got two Christmas jumpers.  One is a miffy one (because I'm grown up like that) where she is on skis against a snowscape and the other has a tree on it that actually lights up.  I intend on wearing them both later this week but totally forgot yesterday!
