I'm dreaming of a recycled Christmas...

It might just be meanness, but I think its more to do with not buying acres of shiny paper, then to throw it all away again. This year we have 'chute de papier' from our local printers which I am painting in suitably festive colours.
I saw an item on a news programme in the UK about the fantastic amount of wrapping paper created just for the festive period. Can't remember the statistics now of course, but suffice it to say, it was something like, you could wrap up all the buildings of Milton Keynes, and still have enough for a few outlying villages.

Happy Christmas, and may all your decor be nicked from a hedgerow, and your presents not be a boxed gift set of incense for yoga, curry made easy pack, or anything that you have to open in front of your loved ones and say mmm, "how lovely". When actually all you really wanted was a book token.
