The chuppa chups are dissapearing
I asked the kids (aged 17 - 21) if they wanted the lolly advent & all the Christmas "stuff" out this year - they said yes.
I suppose the memories you have of Christmas growing up, stays with you your whole life. My son said he always feels Christmassy when he walks in & they love having their big Christmas dinner every year. Even though it's hard work for me, I'll continue doing it until someone else takes over. My memories of Christmas as a child are, very old glass Santa Claus lights on the tree, visiting my Grandparents every Christmas Eve at their lovely Queenslander up in Spring Hill & a huge rag doll, must have been more than a metre high (or so I remember), dressed in a pale green dress that my Mother lovingly made - the things you remember!
