Entering the countdown to the big day, it’s time to christmasseyfy and that starts with the tree.
Whether its a Douglas Fir or a Blue Spruce, picking the all important centrepiece of your living room for the next three weeks will make or break your festive period.
Don’t get overconfident and then realise your ceilings are not eight foot high and the hall is not quite as wide as your dad thought – uh oh.
There is always a buy one get one free offer on trees and arguments – who put the lights away last year as they are now tangled, probably broken and mum has to run to the shops to buy new ones which end up being a shade different to the other sets on the tree and Christmas is ruined.
Following the entanglement debacle, you are faced with finding the one light that isn’t working and therefore preventing maximum twinkleage – twas the nightmare before Christmas.
Decorations are the next port of call. Everyone has their favourite and every family has a style. But there is truly nothing worse than a tinsel-smothered spruce, keep it classy people, keep it classy.
And after all that hard work, make sure the cat doesn’t pull it over.
Do you know what I mean?
