I remember as a child - with affection - the Christmas Spirit - singing joyfully - Christmas carols outside neighbours houses; when the door would swing open before I got a line out and they very generously gave me a shilling to fuck off !!.

Merry Christmas Janet, No! i was brought up
back o Listers Mill Manningham Bradford !!
However, the shilling was probably insurance
against having a brick thrown through their
window !!
And i was once given half a crown for singing
outside the Childrens Hospital !!
And i was given a ten bob note for leading a
green grocers horse and cart in thick fog to a
pub with a tilly lamp !! Im a very young 61 !! xx

You must be from a very rich era. Either that or you're much younger than me.
We only got a thru'penny bit and i swallowed one of them on a mini roundabout. I'm still chokin'.
