December 1st!

Snowflakes and chocolate drops and egg nog and Santa Claus and bulk buy deals on AAA batteries and drone strikes and Christmas cards falling off the mantel piece all day long and arguments.  

It's December 1st, we're officially in the festive season and it won't be long until we're checking to see if a big red VIP has made his deliveries. 

However, opened my advent calendar and got a load of toenails. What's happened?
