I just love getting into the spirit of christmas with reading a good story, the start of festive events for me.  Is it too early as not even in December yet?
I think everything is happening so much earlier this year for some reason, do you?  I have even bought just about all the Christmas presents and a friend has not only bought all hers but she has wrapped all of them!  I am not that organised or it might be that I really do not like all the wrapping, every year I say I will take my time and do them all lovely with bows and ribbons but that has never happened yet! lol
My daughter is putting her tree up this weekend but that is mainly because she works and we have three birthdays to celebrate during the twelve days before Christmas.  A very busy time for all of us.
Have a great weekend everyone, I am doing workshops at the Quarterhouse both days so really looking forward to those.  Travel writing and Memoir writing so I am sure to learn a lot, will let you all know tomorrow how they both went.

    I saw a tree up in a house today so that is the first I have seen. I have also put the Christmas tunes in my car. I love seeing the children so excited and happy. My friend is having 3 fake xmas’ this month as she goes away for a few weeks to escape the cold, I’m tempted to go with her but know I would be as miserable as sin without the kids. X

    I have to confess that, despite my best efforts to keep it at bay, Christmas comes just that little earlier each year. Not so long ago I wouldn’t countenance it until around 15th December, then 10th, then 1st, and now, when the lights are being switched on in places like the Creative Quarter in mid/late November, I have to accept it, albeit reluctantly. Like many people, I am irritated by Christmas songs in the stores in October, but then my parents used to go on “turkey and tinsel” weekends in September, so got into the spirit very early! And I do know of people who keep their lights up all year round!

What do you think?
