Flicking the Switch

5th December 2011

It is now officailly Christmas EVERYWHERE, as we have now finished all of our light switch ons (just my own Christmas tree to do now). If you came down to any of them can I say a massive thankyou, especially for braving the cold. These events are some of the best that we do, but because of the time of year they are on the chilly side. The final switch on we did was in Peterlee and that was particularly cold. One of those nights where you lose feeling in your nose. It was worth it though as we had a great time, gave away a huge prize and Matt and Darren from Hollyoaks were brilliant, even when asked if they were going back into the show, only for one of them to say "well my character was killed off..." awkward!

So even though I haven't got my Christmas tree up, it should happen in the next couple of days, I have been feeling Christmassy especially getting the classic Christmas movie clips together. You forget how many great films there are, Elf, scrooged, It's a wonderful life, Love actually, The Grinch. I mentioned this to a few people and they all had their favourites and would start reciting lines from it. If you google Greatest Christmas films, you come across various different lists and they include some odd 'christmas' movies. For example on one list you had Die Hard and Gremlins! Now I know they are taking place at Christmas time, but does that really qualify them as Christmas movie? The only reason they make the list I think is that they are always on at Christmas, it's the only explanation. You can win all this month on our advent compitition just listen out for the classic Christmas movie clip.

Talking about Christmas means I realise that I've nearly been married a year! which has flown over, and on that note I probably should go and get a card. See you soon.
