In reply to the lovely Frances' Bah Humbug post:
Here are a few of the reasons why I love this time of year.
An excuse to snuggle in front of the fire and an excuse to get creative with the fairy lights.
An excuse to read my favourite Christmas stories to the grandchildren... again!
Lots of Christmas dances - so an excuse to wear my new 50s inspired dress.
An excuse to take the grandchildren to the late night Christmas shopping in town, where we also have the excuse to eat toasted marshmallows, admire the Victorian Christmas scene in the sweet shop window and browse the goodies inside.
An excuse to read my three Christmas stories in Fiction Feast (sorry, I couldn't resist that).
All this and still two weeks to go.
Sorry Frances, but I can't help it... I just love Christmas!
