Jingle Bells, the Victoria's Secret Way

You can probably carol better than a Victoria's Secret Angel - how's that for an ego boost?

Tomorrow, in addition to the usual pinching and punching that comes with the first day of the month, people all over the world will be putting up their Christmas trees and stringing fairy lights from every nook and cranny. Of course if you're a big ol' department store you did this back in August, and had everyone shaking their heads and muttering about Christmas "starting earlier every year" under their breath. Along with the tinsel and fake snow, you'll probably have noticed that Christmas carols are slowly infiltrating into every public space.

At first they are a pleasant surprise - a snatch of 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town' sends you right back to your primary school days. Then you find yourself humming along to 'Little Drummer Boy' in the supermarket. Maybe you even get a few wines down and passionately serenade your workmates at the Christmas party with 'All I Want For Christmas Is You'. But eventually it gets to be too much. It's Christmas Eve, your little nephews and nieces just learnt all the words to 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer' (with actions), and you've locked yourself in the study with a 'sudden' headache. Before it gets to that stage, though, we just wanted to get in early and wish you a happy Christmas, Victoria's Secret-style:
