That time of year is approaching again; the temperature plummets below freezing and christmas songs are played again after hibernating for a year.
I've just customized my iPod and synced my christmas playlist onto my music to get me into the spirit! Christmas is my favourite time of year- I love everything about it. The carols, the decorations, the snow, the food, the cheesy films...The christmas countdown has officially begun, which means the advent calendars can be opened- if my dad decides not to sneakily open a few of the 25 little doors, steal the chocolate and then close them again. Although the christmas decorations aren't put up in my house until a few weeks from now, it's lovely to attend a "switch-on" whereby the town is illuminated with florescent colours and the groovy messages of "merry christmas" are turned into a vibrant red. The event we attended provided entertainment throughout the afternoon, of which we danced and sang along to.
Although the floor was vibrating vigorously and it was very hot around the crowds of eager christmas enthusiasts, we were still pretty hyper up and fully enjoyed the afternoon. When one of the entertainers came on stage and yelled:
"Who wants this T-shirt then? I'm gonna' give it to the person who jumps the highest."
I tried ever so hard to spring up into the air to claim the appealing looking blue T-shirt. Joe even lifted me up so my head was exposed above the crowds, but unfortunately the singer was too engaged in his rap and didn't see me. So I didn't get the free T-shirt, much to my disappointment. A wonderful afternoon and evening; a great opportunity to get into the christmas spirit.
