There’s really something special about the yuletide season and sometimes we couldn’t help but wish it was Christmas everyday. Well one man made that a reality – at least for himself!
Andy Park, an electrician from Wiltshire, England is probably the world’s biggest Christmas fan. In fact, he’s been celebrating it every single day for almost a quarter of a century now. In fact, he has rightfully earned the nickname Mr Christmas.
In a Unilad interview, Andy revealed:
“What is it I like so much about Christmas? Well, it’s everything! The decorations are up, the lights are up, the lights are lit, the crackers are out, the smell of Christmas dinner…
“I love to watch the Queen’s speech every day on DVD. I love the Christmas cards I send to myself every day. There’s nothing about Christmas I dislike, I like the lot.”
So far, his daily celebrations has always been bringing him positive vibes.
“I get up in the morning happy, I got to bed happy. I’ve had a present and I’ve had a Christmas dinner. I’ve met a few neighbours and pulled crackers, had a sherry and mince pie with them all – it’s fantastic.”
How did his Christmas obsession begin in the first place, you ask? According to Andy, it all started when he was a kid when his parents bought him a wooden toy plane for Christmas despite their financial struggles.
It was during a summer day in 1993, however, when he decided he’d celebrate the annual holiday more frequent than usual.
“I was out delivering a washing machine – because that’s my job – I work on white goods and that sort of stuff – and it was such a hot day in July and I thought there’s something better I can do than delivering white goods surely and I thought, ‘I’ve got it!’
“I went home, got the Christmas decorations out of the loft, got the tree up, got the Christmas dinner cooking. I found a VHS copy of the Queens Speech, put it on and it really worked!
“It felt like Christmas day in the middle of summer and I did it the next day and the next day and 24 years on, I’m still doing it and it’s really great fun.”
At some point, he even tried spreading the holiday joy with everyone in the town of Melksham – by keeping the Christmas tree lighted the whole year – but some objected to the idea.
“One time, I did get on to the council. I even offered to pay them to keep the [town’s Christmas] tree up all year round and also the decorations.
“I was going to pay for every bulb but they wouldn’t hear it. They said, ‘that’s crazy, keeping a Christmas tree up all year round? It’s a real one for a start, it will lose all its pines!’”
Today, he releases a record each year aptly entitled It’s Christmas Everyday Remix.
His other goal, aside from celebrating Christmas each day, is ultimately to join English pop group Take That.
“I’ve been on to Gary Barlow about this and it was taken as a joke,” he said. “I’ve learned all his songs, I’ve learned all his music, all his records and I just hope that one day I get a phone call saying, ‘yes you can join Take That.'”
6-Year-Old Twins Married In Lavish Ceremony Arranged By Own Parents
The twins are believed to have been lovers in their past lives and need to be married to avoid bad luck.
Most six-year-olds are usually concerned with what games to play. However, a pair of twins has just had to deal with marriage. The young girl and boy were married in a lavish ceremony that was actually arranged by their own parents. The reason behind it has something to do with their past lives.
The fraternal twins were born in September 2012 in Samut Prakan, which is close to Bangkok, Thailand. As soon as they were born, the parents of the boy nicknamed Guitar and his sister Kiwi were already convinced that the children needed to be married. This is because of a Buddhist belief that male and female twins have 'karma' from relationships in their previous life and have been re-born together. When this happens, it is believed that a debt has not been settled.
Kiwi gets some help in putting a ring on her brother Guitar.
The twins' father Amornsan Sunthorn Malirat and his wife Phacharaporn were understandably concerned about the children. After all, Buddhists believe that the twins would need to be married as soon as possible otherwise they will experience bad luck. As a remedy, the parents splurged on an expensive wedding ceremony so Guitar and Kiwi can be wed....
Tibetan Girl’s Unconventional Beauty Shakes the Modeling World
Her look is so different, “out of this world” is a more fitting description for her.
Right now, when you say "supermodel," you immediately think of Kendall Jenner or the Hadid sisters, Gigi and Bella. They may differ when it comes to looks, but they are still considered conventional by modeling standards. Now a new model comes in and her look is so different, and some say "out of this world" is a more fitting description for her.
Tsunaina, who hails from Tibet and is currently living in the UK, has beautiful slanted eyes, gorgeous pouty lips, chiseled jawline, and lots of beauty marks scattered all over her lower face.
Check out her beauty marks...
But it's the nose that is her most striking feature of all - it looks unbelievably flat and wide from the front due to her thick nose bridge.
