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.
