When I was a kiddie, I was jealous that my little brother (born Christmas Day) had the Christmas tree up on his birthday yet it would never be on display on mine (early November). Fast forward a few years, my parents gave in to my demands and we started putting the Christmas tree and decorations up on or around my birthday every year!
Although I don’t live at my parent’s home any more, the tradition lives on. Last night, the official city Christmas lights were turned on in the city centre and it hugely reignited my Christmas spark… and poof, the decorations are up at my home! We’ve been singing Christmas songs all night. If it’s early enough for the full city council, then it’s early enough for me!
With us having a relatively blue-themed living room, we like quite neutral decorations – we fill the room with silvers, golds, black, white and the odd bit of blue. Very pretty!
Christmas is a lovely, happy time of year – you can’t blame us for getting over-excited!
