For several weeks there have been decorations in all the stores, piped Christmas music, festive menus in restaurants, Christmas tv ads to buy the latest must-have gift. I’ve spied homes decorated with twinkly lights since the beginning of November, all way before it felt necessary. I am not bah-humbug usually but the shine of the season has taken a while to reach me this year. Perhaps it’s been the mild weather here in the UK or the fact I am not working so I haven’t been caught up in the anticipation of office parties and Christmas Jumper Day and so on.
So happy to report ‘The Festive Spirit’ has now found me. Yay! The tree is up, looking pretty, favourite decorations taking pride of place and I’ve even had my first Christmas Turkey dinner (with friends with whom I do pub quizzes). I am also frantically knitting last minute Christmas gifts, which will be revealed at a later date after they’ve been gifted!
How festive is anyone else feeling?
