Amanda, I think this web link is positively wonderful. Wish something like this had been about when I was a child.

And yes you are right in what you say, even though I personally don't celebrate xmas it does not mean that others don't, I am very much in the minority and I know it.

Hey Scolers just think no xmas would mean no drinkies, no parties, no fruit cake, plum pudding with custard etc. etc.
Also a lot of us would miss out on a couple of days off work.
So xmas - bring it on :?#

In what way is Christmas not celebrated? Food wise, religion wise, gift wise ?


I don't do xmas in any way, no presents, religion, xmas cards, xmas tree, nothing. In times gone by the day has even passed without me realizing it until after the event. To me it is just another day and xmas time is just an excuse to have holidays.

We always have good food, drinks, treats etc everytime we camp no matter what time of year we camp but we don't do anything in keeping with the usual traditional feasting of xmas. And yes I do save lots of money and the dilemma of what to buy etc by not buying gifts for anyone.

Hope that answers all you questions. Cheers .

I have those sorts of treats at any time during the year, whenever I want them, I don't have to wait for xmas to have them.

And I work in an industry where there is compulsory closure over the xmas NY period so I always have holidays.

So please tell me what it is that I am missing out on Blue Bravo??

Thats cool and each to their own although I was confused and thats why i asked...

thanx for the information GL


I agree the lid is a very attractive addition but what really sold me was the fact that 2 brackets are supplied, one suitable for permmanent fixture and one that attaches to a pole. Every camp has a pole.

I have 3 on hold for me as I have decided to give some as xmas presents to those who have everything. It appears to me that camping is not the only place where they could be useful.

Additionally I like the fact that I can still recycle those horrid plastic shopping bags.

Cheers.......

I now understand your confusion, even I am confused by that above statement so here goes the explanation.

I don't give xmas presents as such but did buy a couple of extra Croc Bins to give to friends. It just so happened that I was camping with them over the xmas period and chose to give them during that time. I did not give them on xmas day but on sat 22 when I arrived at camp.

I also gave one in return for some canvas type work that was done for me and whilst I actually gave it over the xmas period, it was not a xmas gift.

It was just an easy out for me to post it as I did rather than go into the whole issue of the giving of gifts for something other than as a xmas presents.

I give gifts in appreciation of some kindness or something that has been done for me or simply because I feel the recipient might like to have it and might not have access to such.

I still have one on the shelf to give my daughter when she next goes camping and I also have a spare one just in case...so who knows what will happen with that one.

Hope this helps sort the confusion for you.
