Well, it seems to get earlier every year and we are not even into Advent, soon they will begin in the summer like the shops! This is the first of the Christmas Fayres (only 3 more church ones and 3 more school ones to go! ) This is my signal that the exhausting , jammed packed diary/helter skelter ride to Christmas has begun.
It was fun yesterday to see what felt like the whole of ST A’s packed into the village hall. My jaw aches from four hours of smiling! There were the same old stalls, father Christmas, mulled wine, mince pies and hot soup! Everyone seemed happy to be there. It is so good to see folks working together, enjoying each others company and not moaning.
But Christmas a month early! No wonder folks find it hard to celebrate on the day. They’re exhausted.
