While the majority of people enjoy Christmas and embrace the festive season, there are also those who absolutely loathe it. For some people, the fact that supermarkets start stocking mince pies in October drives them nuts.

I did actually see a mince pie selection back in October and when I checked the 'best before' date, it was early December. Mouldy mince pies for Christmas day, anyone?
