It’s Christmas Eve. I’m just waiting for Matt to arrive at my Parents’ house then the excitement will really kick in. I’m making us roasted aubergine pasta tonight, just because it’s so easy. Then later there are carols on the cross nearby so perhaps we’ll go up there, if not, it will be something to drink and some boardgames. Do you have plans this evening?
I thought I’d sign another Christmas off with photos from my town’s Christmas Tree Festival. Fifty real trees decorated by organisations, companies and groups to raise money for the charities close to their hearts. It’s a lovely thing to stroll around and draws quite a lot of visitors from all round the county. I’m told that more than £5000 was raised last year.
This year the trees were following the theme of TV programmes, old and new. Dr Who fans should easily be able to spot their tree in the photos below, but I’ll come to my favourite at the end.
For Christmas eve reading, I reccommend skipping back two years to Christmas traditions in our house. Are you excited about the day ahead? I can’t wait to spend it with my family. I hope your Christmas is a fantastic one.
