As Great Britain looks forward to the start of summer, some wintry souls in the TV scheduling department at More 4 are counting down the days until Christmas. Or at least, so it seems.
This Bank Holiday morning, More 4 aired Bing Crosby’s classic festive flick, White Christmas – 208 days before Christmas Day.
There was at least some method to the madness. The hit Christmas song was apparently first recorded on the 30th May 1942 so the channel was attempting to mark that all important 74th anniversary. But mostly, it just confused the hell out of everyone.
Still, after a long weekend of bank-holiday boozing, maybe a little bit of festive cheer was exactly what we all needed?
