Santa due at Asda by the weekend


The great Christmas countdown begins today, as supermarkets start to pile up tubs of Roses, and Cadbury’s Heroes in the entrance.

Although we’re still two weeks away from Christmas songs in the aisles, the old guy that greets everyone at the door of Asda is already wearing an elf costume.

The girl on the butcher’s counter is wearing a sprig of tinsel in her hair, and making lewd mistletoe-based suggestions to customers, in a bid to move the fading pile of turkey mince.

‘Why don’t they just start Christmas in February,’ suggests Asda customer, Peter Thape (38).

‘Can’t see me getting through another winter,’ added Thape.
