Dungannon Council Propose A Rescheduling Of Christmas

Christmas-cancelledIn what has been described as a ‘brave and completely nonsensical’ proposal, Dungannon Council have tabled a bid to the central County Authority to postpone Christmas this year until next February or so. The bold idea was drawn up this morning in an alleyway in Scotch Street with all six members of the powerful council agreeing to put back the holiday in a straight swap for Valentine’s Day, blaming the mild weather for the change.

Seamus McAliskey, a 30 year old steam train driver from the lowlands, reckons there’s a dark secret they’re not telling us:

“Listen, I was in Germany last week driving a train and all these Germans were asking me if it was true that Dungannon spent all its money on dud sparklers and bangers from Nutt’s Corner. Apparently that’s all the talk on the continent. I reckon the buggers have no money for lights and stuff til the new budget comes through in January.”

Dungannon Lord Mayor Hilary McGettican refutes the allegations:

“Whilst I acknowledge the mistake we made with the Algerian sparklers, we still have money left. We are proposing having Christmas on the 25th of February for many reasons. I am now going to talk in bullet points…”

  • There’s no money in the country at this time for builders, gardeners and farmers
  • There’s usually far more snow in February
  • We can raid shops in other counties for half price stock-clearance Christmas stuff in the week after Christmas
  • It’s far too close to Boxing Day and the New Year
  • We won’t have to listen to Slade or Mariah Carey on the radio”

Under the new conditions, if passed, Valentine’s Day will be sandwiched between Christmas Eve and St Stephen’s Day.

The central council will debate the proposal on Tuesday straight after they deal with the 10th Tattyreagh bid for city status.
