Hello one and all! And how are we this mighty fine evening? I have been up to my eyeballs in paint, eggnog and fluffiness! Basically I have been committed to my job as a mother. I just wish it would pay more, HA only joking. I get paid in hugs and kisses from my adorable son. Apologies for my absence as I keep seeming to disappear down a rabbit hole but fear not I shall always return with more wit and humour than before…
It’s that time of year again Christmas!!!…wait a minute…(checks calendar) It’s only November? What the hell? Why are we all going on about Christmas when we are still in November…what a cruel trick indeed getting my hopes up. I am going to cry into my eggnog now.
It does seem strange to me, that we should all be putting up our trees and watching Christmas films when it is only November. What happened to the 12 days of Christmas? I can’t help but shake the feeling that in my old age I am becoming a moody scrooge. That or my husband has rubbed off on me. (Love you really!)
It seems to me that we are a nation (maybe even a world) that really cannot wait to celebrate Christmas, so much so that we celebrate it before the actual day. It strikes me as odd as I have always believed in waiting and indulging in the few special days that are the holiday. It feels much more worthwhile because it is only for a few days and not two/three months of constant Christmas songs and mince pies. (Except for those who have completely lost their marbles and celebrate for most of the year!!!) Why drag it out and go on and on about how festive we are feeling and Oh look another eye-boggling knitted jumper (I do love them).
Let’s savour each moment when it is Christmas. Let’s not worry about the presents or the food but see our family and friends. Take joy in seeing them well and happy. Talk, laugh and be merry. Christmas spirt and all that jazz. It’s a once a year holiday because it is only once a year, not months early before even Halloween has passed, but one solitary day. And lets face it, as soon as Boxing day hits we will be bombarded with the January sales. It’s fat cat heaven!
Yes, I will stop being a scrooge and just to show you that I do love Christmas I strongly suggest you watch this amazing add! It has Mog in it! That is the only reason I can justify it being early. Mog needs to been seen and loved by all!!!
