Christmas is coming – with all the trimmings

Is it just me, or does it feel like Christmas is arriving earlier each year?

Last week, I attended two dinner functions and was amazed at the fact that Christmas trees and all the trimmings were on display.  The only thing missing was Christmas crackers, hats and Nana standing up at 3pm for the Queen’s speech.

Personally, I’m not at all ready for the festivities due to work demands, but shops, hotels and restaurants are gearing up for the silly season.  It’s great to see so many venues already booked up for Christmas.

On the plus side, the comedy material virtually writes itself at this time of year as stories of old tend to get resurrected, much like that old Christmas jumper.

One thing is for sure – you won’t catch me dressing up like a Christmas tree and wearing a silly Val Doonican cardigan anytime soon.  Well, not in public anyway . . .

Right then, I’m off to start my Christmas gift list ready for my dash around the shops at 3pm on Christmas Eve . . .
