Posted:Chrimbo's a crap word! Especially since Avid Marrion used it, NO WAY and I mean NO WAY! Is that a christmas song? It's PANTS!!!!
Chrimbo is just another word for christmas, and it's pants. I don't like it, it sounds stupid, then again so do many other things but it's one of those words that really bugs you after you hear a song over and over and over again "Proper Chrimbo" God! I could kill my friends the amount of times I've heard that!!!!

Me too! not watching tv or listening to the radio can have its advantages...

Chrimbo is, indeed, a hideous word and yet nevertheless I find myself using it from time to time. I'm sure we have far worse slang words if we think about it though.


**thinks hard...**

frown

mad

Possibly not.
