December

Christmas in the UK starts in August.  Well, it feels like that.  By September shops are decorated with Xmas bunting, by October the Xmas songs have started and by November you’re usually sick of the whole damned thing.

The US has a much better approach to the almighty festival of commercialism.

Due to Halloween in October, and Thanksgiving in November there is less of a vacuum to fill.  This means the Christmas build-up only really starts in December.

Now it’s started and I’m loving trying to feel Christmassy in shorts, t-shirt and sun!

Here’s our tree for 2011 from conception to decoration:
