Christmas Shopping...

Well. I've started my Christmas shopping. NO! Don't get too excited, I've brought some tags and some wrapping paper, that's about as fae as I go for the moment. Shopping in Watford at the moment is a NIGHTMARE!!! It's been chaotic. Saturday 1st December, all roads leading to the town...GRID LOCKED!!!! Honking horns, people walking around with faces like they'd been slapped with a wet fish, and cars and people everywhere. Children being dragged around screaming "I WANT I WANT IWANT" where's the christmas 'spirit' gone? Where's the magic??? I want the magic back! I want christmas to start the week before Christmas, not in October when the Harlequin Centre and London shops feel it neccesary to cover everything in fairy lights and glitter. I want the magic or writing letters to santa, not typing them on a computer. I want my kids to sit down and really, I MEAN REALLY think about what they want. I want to bake cookies and mince pies with the children and put them out on christmas eve whether they're perfect or not, with the carrots for the reindeer. I will say one thing though, that I found in the town last week that was perfect... in a card shop I found a christmas card with a 'magic key' on the front and it simply said, 'because we have no chimney, leave this out for Santa by the back door. I live in a bungalow, with no chimney so I had to buy it. If Santa landed his sleigh on our roof I think he'd definitely come through the roof!!! ha ha ha. BRING BACK THE MAGIC!!!!
