I put on some Christmas tunes for the first time this year yesterday. They really put you in a good mood don’t they?
No wonder so many people start listening to them in November, when the reality is that it’s dark when you get up in the morning and it’s dark when you get home, we haven’t felt the sun on our skin for months and the weather is miserable. (I can hear the rain beating on my windows as I write this from soggy Manchester). Christmas makes us think about the happier things, like family and friends, food and gifts, and it gives us something to look forward to when the idea of summer feels like a lifetime away!
Anyway, I wanted to tell you all about another craft event I will be taking part in very soon which will be very Christmassy!
This Sunday the 14th I will have a stall at the Christmas Winter Wonderland event, held at Kings Church on Sidney Street in Manchester, where I’ll have a range of my ceramics available for purchase.
The Christmas fun fair from 4pm till 9pm will include market stalls, Christmas food and drinks, kids activities, a snowboarding simulator and a walk through telling of the Christmas story, as well as carols from a Christmas choir at 5pm and 7.30pm.
Who could resist all these festivities!? Happy December everyone! Maybe i’ll see you there.
P.S – A friend of my sister-in-law is the female vocalist in the Christmas song below – ‘1914 – The Carol of Christmas’ by Military Voices. I’ve heard that it’s made it onto Radio2’s playlist – maybe this could be our Christmas number one? The charity single is raising funds for the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity and the RAF Benevolent Fund and can be purchased from all the usual places.
