The REAL christmas story...
Well another week nearer to Christmas or should we rename that Winters Day making sure that we are all PC correct and not offending anyone.
So now the deluge of `Winter` adverts on the telly you cant get through a single programme without the complimentary showing of all things `Winter`. The only thing that gets me about the ads is the fact that they show something that is not real in most households up and down the breadth of England – families having a good time, exchanging gifts and then sitting down to stuff there faces and fall asleep. Most households are one parent families struggling to buy presents that are advertised on the telly’s that they have brought on tic last year and are still paying off! And its hardly happy families for most people more Divorces, Domestics and tears are heard up and down the country on that one-day then at any other time. So you would think that the adverts would be more real, but that would not sell the dream would it.
And if you are single it’s the worst time of your life (well for some) it’s a time to think about wishing you were with someone to open presents with and share the day with to make it seem a bit different from the rest of the year.
Ok `Winter` rant over J If you are feeling sorry for me don’t I happen to be someone who loves Christmas whether with Family or Friends or home alone watching the usual suspects that are shown every Christmas. But I know lots of people who find this time of the year nothing special from the young to the old.
The last couple of years have been the best Christmas`s I have had spending them with people I love very much and enjoying good food, wine and company. Lets hope this year will be no different.
Anyway lots of fun times to be had before that day draws nearer so see you all soon
