IMPORTANT NEWS FLASH: It’s NOT the most wonderful time of the year… yet.
Now I am perhaps the biggest fan of Christmas since 3 wise men decided it was important enough to travel hundreds of miles for the party bearing gifts that were both stupidly heavy and grossly inappropriate for a newborn baby. It’s by far my favourite time of year and come the 1st of December I will be Decking the Halls like Holly’s going out of fashion and rockin’ around the Christmas Tree until it inevitably falls over and crushes me. Yes I really do adore Christmastime but one thing I don’t do is wish it could be Christmas every day.
As I write this I am surrounded by a flurry of Christmas decorations as my in-laws start some early pre-christmas decoration. Now in this particular case I’m willing to give them a pass as they plan to be away at the time they would normally decorate and so early decoration is necessary, but as for anyone else jumping the gun, there’s not long to go now so hold your reindeer!
Very soon you can don those Christmas jumpers, watch festive films all day long and sing carols to your heart’s content. I will be right there with you jumping off the walls with excitement, rushing to find a tree suitably tall to fill most of my living room and decorating Dom with tinsel in the traditional manner. Until then though please excuse me whilst I munch through a bag of humbugs and temporarily route for the Grinch. November? Bah, Humbug!
