Christmas

We were always the first with our decorations up.
Now everyone seems to be putting their Christmas decoration up already and it's still November.

Yes, there are a few up on my street already, but part of that is to get the outdoor stuff up before the weather gets extremely cold. It's going to be mild on Tuesday so I may put up some lights then.

Normally it would be about the 23rd, but our Grandson is 15 months old now, and getting very excited, so it's going up earlier, for him!

First Saturday in December the DP goes and purchases a real tree. He now has to do the decs too on it, though I tweak them ! House in a neighbouring village that does the outside of the house big time lit it at the weekend.
