Sorry for being a killjoy, but there's a logical error here. He asks Santa who he is while he wonder why he is appearing before Thanksgiving, which suggest he know who Santa is.
He knows that's not the real Santa, because he's there before Thanksgiving...

Is that a real snow-globe in front of the tv? Haven't seen one of them for years....
I meant to move that snow globe out of shot .. now everyone knows I've got a snow globe ..

(just kidding, that isn't really my living room. I only ever watch porn on my laptop)

I remember we had a couple of those in my child hood. They were "magical".
You can still buy them in Cromer which probably surprises precisely nobody ..

Porn snow-globes? Now that could be a very entertaining 'Dragon's Den' investment pitch.

I suppose the common trope is that of a object of adoration perched upon the mantlepiece, being partially-obscured by brief white showers (preceded, of course, by vigourous shaking, then followed by fleeting disappointment & shame)

So, the couple on the screen are ....distant cousins ?

Strange place to keep the family album.

I barely notice Christmas anymore. I'm only reminded when I go out to run errands

I'm often sent out to run errands anyway so even that wouldn't remind me ..

Me and 'the Mrs' will be working Christmas day anyway .. just another day at work but a bit shitter because we'll be busier and nobody gets a Christmas box from the owners ..

Halloween's our Christmas. At least I won't have to listen to Slade this year. Or George Michael. Or even worse, that little drummer boy song. I ****ing hate that little drummer boy song.

I hate Xmas and all its hypocrysy and not just because my birthday is several days later.

One celebration I went to and enjoyed throughly, was Burns night at the local inn. (This is in Cornwall)

There was tartan burning and men in skirts and a piper and poetry and a HAGGIS. It was great fun.

(The deep fried mars bars did not go down well, i will say)

So, I am looking forwards to January.

Even this version?

Sorry .. I've just realised I've got the song title wrong so I'm talking about a completely different song .. I mean the one that if the bloke sounded anymore mockney, the world would indeed be flat .. the one with a 'oompa oompa' brass band playing. I can't remember the title of it though. I hate that one with a passion.

Yep .. that's the one :( .. I hate that one. It's worse than that Noddy Holder one everyone was also forced to hear in every shop every Christmas every year .. for years and years and years and years and years and years and years and years and years .. the only song that was able to break that played to death spell was Mariah Kerry with 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' .. which also got over played but I was free at last and so I owe her a pint, big time.

tartan burning?
I, too, question the substantive accuracy of this curious-yet-enticing reported activity (though, so saying, presumably my feral clan roots would subconsciously seek to burn any kilt that's oota kilter wi ma kith'n'kin)

Come on @Kondoru! Spill the beans, please! What did you actually see burn, during this orgiastic romp in Cornwall?

Whilst this cultural misapprehension may seem at odds with the tick-box tropes of our current Caledonian collective canon, there is only so much of any plastic Scotia that can be swallowed at one sitting.

Therefore, if you do want to submit a formal proposal regarding the added annual ceremonial burning of some select tartan on or around 'Burns' day (maybe I'm warming to this...or is it just the whisky?) simply write your idea down on the back of a large Clydesdale Bank £20 and send it to Sister Mary Marquis c/o The White Heather Club, Brigadoon, Nr Slamannan, ZE1 0MG
