I think the problem for me is that it all starts too early....who wants to see tins of Xmas chocs and calenders for 2011 in September?
Don't get me wrong, I do like Christmas, I just feel that its turned into an overhyped commercial nightmare the past few years. Sofa ads with Mariah Carey " All I want for Christmas is yooouuuuuuu" in October, Top 30 Xmas tunes countdown on music channels for the past month (yes, starting beginning of November) and don't get me started on people who put up full Xmas decorations complete with flashing house lights etc. mid November! ITS TOO EARLY!!! Argh!!
The only festive thing in my house at the moment is my Hello Kitty Advent Calender! Well, you have to have an advent calender, dont you?! I was never allowed a chocolate one as a kid - thanks mum! :) - I had traditional paper ones.
And I suppose it looks Christmassy outside my house.....
A light dusting of snow in my garden.
I promise I will start enjoying Christmas soon.....in a few weeks when its nearer the date and we get our tree! (Always a real one...love the smell!)
