the countdown to Christmas can begin…

At last! It’s the 1st of December and I can stop being annoyed by all the far too early mentions of Christmas that have been surrounding me for the last 6 weeks or so.

The advent calendar is hanging up, I’ve looked out my Christmas things and I’ve got the music ready.

Now all we need is some frosty weather and we’re all set to go!

  1. I could have written this post myself!

  2. Here in the Netherlands it’s only technically ok to start “Christmas” AFTER Sint Nicolas has been in the beginning of December.
    There’s been some flack recently as shops flaunt this unwritten rule and many Dutch feathers have been ruffled, even as far as the National evening News.
    Sadly commercialism is slowly creeping up on us, too many marketing ploys for “stuff”we don’t even need anyway and my six year old is hoping to score his wish-list that apparently encompasses every single advertisement he’s seen on TV in the last month. (yeah right kid … NOT).

    • Such a sensible idea to have an official start time. I agree that the TV advertising is bad – there are going to be lots of disappointed children this Christmas.

Now it's your turn
