No, not dirty and full of Rab C. Nesbitt. Just a bit patchy.
I was kindly presented with this lovely Christmas Spirit award last year (ooh, that'll be all of two weeks ago then) by Trees. The idea was (oops sorry Trees) that you must be a true Christmas lover to receive this award. The person to whom you give the award must also be in love with Christmas. You must link back to the person who gave you the award. You must list 5 things that you love about Christmas. If you can't limit it to 5 things, then keep going till you run out of space! Pass the award along to as many people as you like.That can be 1 or 45; it's up to you. But, you must pass it on to at least one person in order to keep the Christmas cheer going! Let your recipients know that you have tagged them by leaving them a comment.
So my 5 things:
1 The feeling of general goodwill that I get throughout the whole of December.
2 That I get to SPEND MONEY on nice things for other people without getting told off.
3 I can sing carols as I walk round the supermarket and not be thought too strange, though this only applies if it's not too loudly, and only if carol music is playing at the same time.
4 The food. I need say nothing else.
5 The prettiness that is a well-decorated tree.
And I nominate Shimelle as a person who is filled to the brim with Christmas Spirit. She's made my Christmas more fun (which I didn't think was possible) by running her Journal your Christmas scrapbook class. And the extra special bit is I get to do it again next year for free! And the year after... ad infinitum.
So, thanks to Trees, thanks to Shimelle, and I'm now off to display my virtual award in my virtual display cabinet :)
