It has become a little bit of a Christmas tradition here at Jammy Toast that each year we like to watch The Snowman. Every year we like to sit down and enjoy the story by Raymond Briggs but, because it is getting quite old these days, it never seems to feature on the Christmas telly listings. To us, it is the highlight of Christmas Day and so it would appear it is to others also as the film was voted 4th in UKTV Gold’s Greatest TV Christmas Moments.

Everyone here at Jammy Toast would like to wish all our friends and visitors a Very Merry Christmas. As you will notice we have our presents on display next to our logo and it is snowing while Christmas music plays – we are all very festive here at Jammy Toast. For those of you who are slightly annoyed by the Christmas music, if you look at the top right hand corner of the screen you will see a little fairy, click on that fairy to silence the music and bring peace and quiet back to Jammy Toast.

Spare A Thought For Santa

By now Father Christmas will be back at the North Pole and hopefully enjoying a good rest after what must have been the most hectic of night’s work imaginable. No one works harder than Father Christmas or travels further in the name of work. We set Einstein the task of working out some of the figures involved and the results are quite startling. If you assume that Santa visits all the homes of all the Christian children in the world and that the average household has three children and that all the houses are evenly distributed around the world then Santa travels 212million miles.

When we started this whole bear thing off nine years ago we could never have imagined how we would end up with so many Bear Friends. As each year passes I keep thinking that people will drop off and things will die down but each year, as people move on and we lose contact, new friends seem to appear. Other friends have been here right from the beginning and never seem to tire of visiting us here at Jammy Toast. However, to all our friends, old and new, we would just like to say…

White Christmas?

Liverpool v Nottingham Forest, February 1969

Here at Jammy Toast we are more or less ready for Christmas and, like the rest of the country, hoping for a white one. However, statistically we are more likely in this country to have a white Easter than a white Christmas! December is the start of the UK snow window, and it takes just one snowflake to fall on London on the 25th December to get the bookmakers to pay out on bets. Yet wintry weather is actually more common between January and March. But how did we become so obsessed with snow at Christmas, and what are the chances of it actually happening?

Our Favourite Christmas Song

Each Sunday we post some of our favourite songs so seeing as this is the last Sunday before Christmas I thought we should post our favourite Christmas song. It is a song that many people would not associate with Christmas as it is about the intense feelings surrounding death. It tells of a turbulent world through the eyes of a teenager looking out at all that is happening. It is also featured in one of our favourite films; Donnie Darko. Have you guessed what it is yet?
