  1. Merry Christmas everyone thank you for all your thoughts, pictures and both serious and fun over this past year, Its been brilliant to have somewhere to share our angst over how this country is transforming itself into a socialist communist state. Ed and Mrs Ed have a great day, thank you for the site its brilliant. Revtech120, you don’t know how lucky you are, enjoy, have a few drinks and be merry.

  3. Merry Christmas to All.
    Thanks to Ed, and other commentators.
    To further understandings about ourselves, and just what is going on.
    A day to take stock, appreciate, family, friends, neighbours, some nostalgia; and to enjoy whatever we may have.
    Our minds are still free! We can still keep “thinking”, seeking truth, standing up for truth.

    May it all go well for you.

      Lovely to see the kid, but the parents need plan B.
      I grocery shopped for 1 person for 1 day and not overjoyed at interrupted plans.
      Christmas is torture for introverts
      Bah fucking Humbug

    Have a great day. I’m home alone so will have a few quiet ones and laze about and look at my new bmw.



  8. Merry Christmas to All!
    Sneering Lefties have been trying to ban Christmas for years- Watching the look of pure joy on my wee man’s face when he saw his presents this moring confirms for me that Lefties are heartless,soulless bastards.

    Feliz Navidad!



  9. Merry Christmas everyone…..
    “How did the Christmas Truce begin? By all accounts, it was initiated by the Germans. The Christmas Truce began when Germans approached Allied lines singing Christmas carols. They also wrote signs saying not to shoot, pleading for peace, per History. And when the German soldiers appeared in No Man’s Land without their guns, the Allied soldiers dropped their guards and began celebrating in earnest.

    Some believe that when the Germans began to sing Christmas carols, those songs were returned by the Allied side — broaching the silence between the two and paving the way for further positive relations. Either way, both the Germans and the Allied troops were soon celebrating Christmas in the No Man’s Land.”




  10. Merry Christmas everyone!
    Compared with Japan, New Zealand has so few festivals. Christmas (and to a far lesser extent, Easter) are really the only ones. The government is attempting to synthesize some Maori ones, but no one is really interested.

    I am sleep deprived, so I should sleep well tonight. The benefitiary neighbour had his chubby buddies (they are all round and brown) over last night. They sat outside and talked and laughed all night. They were at it at 2:00 a.m. and still going at 4:30 a.m. when our main cat woke me up demanding food. I couldn’t get back to sleep after that.

    I hope the weather will be nice for the New Year, which is a big deal in Japan.
    Here’s a longish video of Christmas lights in Tokyo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdm4OSS6Ou0



  11. Merry christmas all you good bastards here on ysb! Esp Ed thanks for keeping this great blog going and providing a range of content abd most of all letting us be ourselves abd have real free speech!
    Much appreciated, enjoy your day folks its an absolute stunning day here in southland hope the weather is treating you well in other parts of the country.



  12. Morning all and bright clear sunshine to greet us. A bit like NZ is wrapped in bright shiny tinsel paper….
    Thanks to you all for the support YSB provides. A bunch of you have amazing insight into our strange and distorted world and I wouldn’t be half as strong without you. Thank you!! Have a fun day with your family or friends and enjoy the sunshine, good food and whatever you imbibe. 🥳

    And to those who are on their own, or as usual with your spouse or partner enjoy your day. Put some music on and scoff delicious food like there is no tomorrow! I’m not going far so will be checking in on HYS for any Christmas fun or horror stories anyone needs to share. Have a special day, it may be our last if the evil grinch gets her way.



  13. Merry Christmas you grumpy reprobates.
    Santa didn’t provide me with the Cruise Missile I ordered so she’ll survive today anyway…
    Thanks to Ed for his tireless work to provide entertainment and a place to be us.
    I intend to eat far too much, and drink enough to get a silly grin on…Cheers.



  14. “Last summer was the first time that drug-checking services, in which drugs are checked to see if they are what people think they are, were made legal.
    Only people who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will be allowed to attend events and festivals.”

    This makes perfect sense. You’re not allowed into a festival without a vaccine, but you can take your illegal drugs to get tested, to make sure you’re consuming the illegal drugs you thought you were going to be consuming.



  15. Thank you all for sharing through the year. The sanity and at times the insanity has helped me through a mentally tough year. Thanks ED for the work and providing a forum for those of us who may have felt isolated and alone without it.
    Merry Christmas all.



  16. Daniel Hutchinson
    From The Hutch

    ‘Tis the night before Christmas and noisy as heck, the sun is still shining and we’re out on the deck.

    Stockings are hung by the aircon with care – a sweaty Saint Nick will need the cool air.

    Children are silly but trying to sleep, though there’s a fat chance of that with all the excitement and heat.

    With the sun finally set, we shut up the house, not a creature is stirring, not even a mouse.

    Children are sprawled all over their beds, blankets discarded, just pillows for heads.

    Then out on the lawn there arose such a clatter that I spring from the couch, spilling a cheese and nut platter.

    There’s deer slurping from the fountain and they’re eating my grass, so I pull out the phone and take them to task.

    SunLive and Facebook are first with the news, then DOC’s pest programme gets bad Google reviews.

    On closer inspection though, something seems odd – a woman is beckoning with a wink and a nod.

    “Team of five reindeer, there should have been nine, but social distancing is in place at this time.”

    All dressed in red with brilliant white teeth, sporting a Kate Spade handbag and a pohutakawa wreath.

    “Saint Nick?” I ask, scarcely believing it myself. “You used to be chubby and now you’re an elf.”

    Her head tilted sideways, “it’s Jasanta to you, Saint Nick didn’t make it through MIQ”.

    More rapid than an antigen test, the reindeer came. She whistled and shouted and called them by name. Come Grant, come Kelvin, spread your legs Chris – this guy thinks he’s funny, he’s taking the piss.

    And then in a twinkling I heard on the roof, the prancing and pawing of each little hoof.

    “That’s one way to bring house prices down. Get off the roof you dozy clown.”

    I gave up complaining and turning around, when down the chimney she comes with a bound.

    She’s dressed in a Jacinda coat by fashion label Kilt, now scuffed and dirty from all the soot.

    A bundle of presents flung on her back and what looked like a traffic light sticking out of a sack.

    Her eyes, how they twinkle, face mask fashionably risky, she happily accepts a smoky peat whiskey.

    She exclaims: “What a ride,” while Bloomfield is nodding solemnly by her side.

    This was my big chance to pose them a query, while both were just a little bit merry.

    “What are you putting in the bottom of the stocking? I know it’s not coal because that would be shocking.”

    “We actually signalled this weeks ago, but you’re absolutely right, coal’s a firm no. It’s an orange for everyone except up the top, where people are naughty and have not had a shot.”

    Bloomfield snorted and pawed at the ground, Jasanta looked slightly annoyed at the sound.

    “What is it now, I’m trying to reason, it is after all the festive season.”

    “We should move along, there isn’t much time and unvaccinated heathens are forming a line.”

    With a friendly smile and a flourish of papers, the pair spoke not a word more and went back to their capers.

    They filled all the stockings and straightened with a jerk, then headed for the chimney to continue their work.

    I offered the door, it seemed like the right thing to do, but the pair had already been sucked up by the flue.

    They sprang to the Sleigh and to the team, gave a whistle and away they all flew like the down of a thistle.

    But I heard her exclaim as she drove out of sight.

    “Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night.”

    Then back round they come with a deafening din.

    “Sorry dude, we forgot to scan in.”

    From all of the team at Sun Media, we wish you all a happy holiday season and we will be back in your letter boxes on January 14.




  17. Merry Xmas to all! And thanks to Ed for creating our wonderful community. I love reading all of your comments and being INFORMED.
    Two Irish coffees have signalled the theme for the day. It’s our 3rd Xmas out of 4 where it’s just the two of us, and we quite like it! Eggs bennie with bacon and salmon to start our day off. Later we will take the quad up top of a mountain here and a bottle of bubbly with our ham sammies will make for a lovely picnic far from the rest of society. That’s what I call Xmas!
    Hope you all have a similarly awesome day no matter where you are. Best wishes to all!!!




    • Just the two of us as well. Apparently we are too dangerous to mixed with the fully vaxed.
      Started the day by testing out our new bait net. Got a bucket of bait in two drags so quite a success.
      So with the fishing kayak and the bait net will be able to feed ourselves whatever happens.



      • Another Christmas to mark out as one of the best with just the 2 of us, an excellent meal, bottle of fizz and good company. Surprisingly feeling very Christmassy, peaceful and enjoyable day without any stress or rancour from certain extended family. Avoiding the control freak Karen and Kens is the key. 😜. Stay real people.
        Oh this wine is delicious!! Cheers! 👏👏



        • Ham sannies for lunch and kids and grandies for christmas tea.
          With presents!
          Father in law at 98, 3 falls in 2days and off to hospital for observation and rehydrate this morning!
          Wonder what his lunch will be?



  18. How can you have two parts of your body in two different US states at the same time?
    Ask Prince Andrew. The rest of his body was in New York while his dick was in Virginia.

    I wonder if Elton has taught his kid to sing , I saw Daddy kissing Santa Claus yet.



  19. Put a message up on a National mp’s page last night asking why none of them were there to meet the protest on the 16th. I also stated that they are indistinguishable from the government. I felt better, those on the page were busy guffawing about bloody red bands.



  20. Go work for corrections head office.

    Questions are being raised over the spending priorities within corrections.

    Head office numbers have blown out to more than a thousand.

    But it’s the salary structure that Sensible Sentencing wants to know more about, 541 staff are earning between $100,000 – $200,000.

    The number paid over $200,000 has tripled from 21 staff to 57.

    If You’ve Had COVID You’re Likely Protected for Life
    BY Joseph Mercola
    TIMEDecember 21, 2021

    If you’ve had COVID-19, even a mild case, major congratulations to you as you’ve more than likely got long-term immunity, according to a team of researchers from Washington University School of Medicine. In fact, you’re likely to be immune for life, as is the case with recovery from many infectious agents — once you’ve had the disease and recovered, you’re immune, most likely for life.
