And now for … Christmas

Most who know me, know that I am not great at Christmas.

Don’t like shopping

Don’t like adverts for toys on TV

Don’t like glitter everywhere

Don’t like having to get things early because there is a last post day

D..n probably missed that already

BUT I LOVE ALL THE PEOPLE – especially here. When anything is going on, everybody comes and joins in [well if they didn’t – there wouldn’t be anyone there would there? This is a small island.]

On Wednesday, just after dark fell at 5.30, it was Christmas Tree Lighting – on the Harbor Church Lawn. Pre-school and kindergarten sang some songs with a little help from a few older kids. Most of the older kids were too busy drinking hot chocolate and eating monkey bars. Some of them were racing about in the dark, fortunately the three I was responsible for (parents are having a couple of days off island) have the hair – strawberry blonde ponytails flash well in the moonlight! Granny can see them! And Santa arrived on the Fire Truck to wish us all well.

      1. Sounds wonderful!
        That traffic lights post of mine has me baffled… everyone seems to be viewing it, and I wrote it back in 2010! Not that I mind, obviously! 😉
        Ah… tree and decorations. It’s that time of the year again! 😀
