DECEMBER – IT’S HERE BOYS AND GIRLS!
I kind of had a guess things would be moving on Sunday…
the first candle on the Advent wreath….lit
lights dangling like icicles off the Lowry shopping mall ceiling
festive drinks on sale both inside and outside the mall,
at least one Christmas tree at each venue I passed
smells of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves floating in the air
as people lined up for a cup of mulled wine or festive hot cocoa
the cold snaps come quick – you could break bits off it
like candy floss – cinder toffee – air mints
and all the while – bright lights colour the night sky
but it was all confirmed this afternoon
in a flickering of festive lights….
Dad’s put up the Christmas Tree.
