    I see you're talking about the xmas music. I don't mind it at all, as a matter fact I enjoy it, since it somehow gives me the "real feeling" of winter. I understand that's the product of marketing I've been exposed to since I was just a kid, but I still like it. As long as they don't become to aggresive and eventuallu annoying, I'm more than okay with it.
    When you're stuck working in a place for several hours and hear nothing but repeat xmas songs you start to dislike the stuff. Remembering of course that the music starts showing up in November and if you're working quite a bit then you hear the same songs over and over again. Add in several years of that.

    Occasional song is fine, but I can't handle being in shops around xmas.

    All languages are complicated if you don't know them. To an English speaker, English is easy. To a non speaker English makes very little sense and the grammatical structure is messy.
    I grew up with English, so it was never a problem to me. The thing I'm talking about is that we have word grading, don't know what's jt really called :D, then the verbs also change depending of the speaker.

    I think almost every language is harder than English. Except Italia maybe.

    Well I'd definitely hate that. And why since November? Two months earlier.

    I have a pair of MPOW brand new ones sitting on the shelf collecting dust. I think shipping might be more than $20 to Bosnia though. You can have them if you want as long as you cover shipping :-)
    Thanks, but the shipping is ~33$ for 0.028kg, that's just sick.

    Italian, French and Spanish all derive from Latin. They share similar grammar and words.

    English is a mix of Latin and Germanic along with some other bits thrown in for confusion. Which is why English is messy.

    Most Eastern EU countries are a mix of Germanic, Slavic, Russian and Urlaic languages.

    Unlike the US, most other English speaking countries don't have Thanksgiving so once Halloween is done it's all in on Xmas.

    A lot of the decorations for Xmas is already out prior to Halloween but the whole thing finally kicks off in earnest once it's done. The endless TV commercials, music, movies all start up. The next month and half will be very tiring.

    Well Russian is Slavic, so saying there's Rusian in other Slavic languages is kind of wrong, sice our words are fairly similar.

    And yes, there's so many German words we use, some of them literally irreplacable. We also have tons of Turkish, and a snakk amount of Arabic words, consenquence of being a slave for 509 years :D.

    Interesting. They don't do it until at least two weeks before the xmas and a New Year.

    The only thing that truly drives me crazy is endless amount of calendars we get as a gift here.
