This Christmas is an exciting one for Nathan, Stacey and I. Why? Well, because it will be Oscar's first one. I know that he won't really understand what's going on or appreciate the gifts that he receives, but I know that he'll love looking at the Christmas tree, the tinsel and the decorations.
I remember his big sisters first Christmas back in 2003. My sister-in-laws Amanda and Michaela invited us shopping with them to Meadowhall, and there were huge trees all around the Oasis where you get your food and drink from. Stacey would have only been a couple of months old at the time, yet she was absolutely enthralled by them! I don't know whether it was the sheer height of them, or the fact they were all trimmed up and looking stunning. I don't think I'll ever forget how magical that day seemed.
Today I took Oscar into town to finish off my Christmas shopping, but unfortunately we didn't see any trees. There were a few decorations dotted around the shopping area but nothing much. It's such a shame.
I think the only store that I went in that had actually made an effort to look festive was BHS! Their Christmas displays were absolutely amazing and I have to admit that I wanted to buy pretty much everything they had. I especially loved their giant slippers, which look great for keeping feet cosy and warm during the winter months.
This video about BHS Christmas shows a giant pig slipper and its friends coming to life in store once the staff have gone home. It made me chuckle as when I was little I would always wonder what happened in shops during the night. It's like my question has finally been answered! Thanks BHS :)
I would love to hear from you :)
