Christmas is almost here! I first realised it a month ago when I ordered an eggnog latte. The first sip tasted like Christmas. The second like winter and the third pure bliss. The eggnog lattes have arrived. Christmas is coming. This miraculous concoction embodied so many of the thing I love; coffee, Christmas and warmth. Their availability in my local Starbucks was not however, my first indication that Christmas was in fact coming, but it was the first one I welcomed. The adverts playing in October irritated me, the catalogues which encouraged people to start saving NOW. The passing of Halloween. None of these, in my humble opinion, were sufficient reasons to allow the festive excitement to start to slowly burn, in a tiny ember of anticipation. And now it is only one more sleep until Christmas Day and all festive promises have been fulfilled. Here are a few snaps of my Christmas journey:
Merry Christmas to all!
