Once Halloween is over, it’s Christmas. I know that to be a fact because Next was playing Christmas music yesterday and the Mulled Wine Air Wick is in Tesco.
You all know how I feel about Christmas. On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being someone who puts their tree up on 24th December and 10 being a bejewelled Mariah Carey singing ‘All I Want For Christmas’ in a glittery snow globe), I’m a 14.
But not everyone feels like I do. These are people I like to call ‘boring.’
Okay, yes if we’re going to be all technical then Christmas is ‘just one day.’ But why deny what the season as a whole has to offer?
Have you tasted Starbucks’s Toffee Nut Latte?!
Have you taken a peek at the enchantment on your kids’ faces when they see those twinkly lights?
HAVE YOU SEEN ALL THE GLITTER??!
Yes, Christmas is ‘one day.’ But it’s also a whole season of happiness and joy and glitter and togetherness. Don’t deny yourself a chance to wonder and be enchanted over a technicality.
Personally, for me, 6th November marks the official day I begin carrying handfuls of glitter and spontaneously throwing it at strangers, bursting into a giddy rendition of ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ as the glitter settles onto their scalp.
Go on, throw your glitter people.
Throw your glitter.
