So it is the time of year for those Christmas Adverts on the tv.
The idea is that you are entertained, your heartstrings are tugged remembering previous Xmas’s and you will buy your products from the shop that has spent the money.
There are also the secondary sales based on the “soft toy ” version of the characters starring (previous items include a penguin, carrot family with a parsnip) which sells out.
The music also starts to sell which gives royalties to the singer, original artist and the writer and so on.
For many years all we had to look forward to was “the wonder of Woolworths ” showing the new toys, the giant quality street chocolate tins and a ‘cute ‘ kid at the end.
This year stuff will be different as life goes on but on top of that we have the various Corona virus regulations.
Reflecting back to Christmas past reminds us of what we have and how we can put together fun.
As I am now a grown up finally, I have to fight my own scrooge like tendencies and get into it.
My resolution is to find the joy that I must have had when I was a child.
Let’s see how I do?
