Christmas counter

Thursday, 21 October 2010


Christmas is approaching, and this is my favourite time of year. Not just the holiday itself, but also the run-up to the big day - I'm a sucker for the commercial side of it all, the TV programmes, the adverts, the movies and the music. When I was a kid I used to hunt down and collect every bit of Christmas paraphernalia I could get my hands on - catalogues, supplements, you name it, I collected it all up into huge thick folders.

And then I grew up and threw them all away. Bugger. They would have made a nice website in themselves.

These days I keep an eye out for Christmas news stories, plus TV adverts, and especially archives of stuff from Christmases past.

As an experiment, I'm going to put everything I see this year into this blog, whilst hopefully being witty, entertaining, and generally being a wonderful way to while away a few minutes whilst having a coffee.

We're a little late into the annual Christmas cycle - there are already a couple of Christmas adverts on TV, and Christmas in July was yonks ago, but let's dive in...

Only 65 days to go...
