We just can’t.
Soon it will just happen and we’ll all just fall victim to it. Theres no point putting up a fight,
You’ll find yourself sitting there, red faced, covered in gravy, wearing a pink hat from a Christmas cracker before you know it (well whats new there?).
Yes. I said it. The C word. And Halloween hasn’t even been yet.
I’m already scared, I’m already feeling the intense crazy pressure that a whole year is nearly over and done with! Again! Because as lovely as christmas is, we all know it means one thing- you definitely did not put that year long gym membership to good use, saved any money or stopped smoking. Sorry New Years Resolutions, maybe next year.
We can all try and say we’re okay with the fact that 12 months have hurtled by so fast that we’re pretty sure that they’ve gotten motion sickness but thats just the sherry/Baileys that starts cropping up this time of year talking.
But there is just no escaping it. Here in Germany, I can’t walk into Aldi without coming face to raisin with Christmas stollen, weird looking things with Marzipan and Glühwein (Mulled wine) and it’s not just that…. the idea of dealing with crazy christmas shoppers is fast encroaching (at least online shopping has weakened the load…somewhat) but I’m just not prepared to fight over pair of fluffy reindeer slippers in a ram-packed Primark…well not again at least.
At least I can hide from the true barage of Christmas- Channel 5’s christmas films (that they start showing mid August).
(see! Christmas makes people crazy!)
Happy Sunday everyone!
p.s. thanks for everybody’s responses about the new blog feature, I’ll be introducing it sometime soon, so if you could spread the word around the blog-esphere, I would be rather grateful.
