    It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

    It’s that time of year again when the silly season starts and we all get into the Christmas spirit. ┬áDon’t get me wrong I don’t dislike Christmas, I like the lights, the music and I love the food. ┬áThe food is arguably the best part. ┬áThe only real problem that I have with Christmas is that it seems to be lasting longer and longer. ┬áThe Christmas season kicks off at the start of November and doesn’t end until well after the day itself.

    Now, I should clarify that I do like getting into the Christmas spirit, I enjoy that I can look at the lights, and I enjoy that I have an excuse to eat a whole box of mince pies and get away with it, but where is that special feeling you get knowing that it’s just one day, it’s no longer the case.

    If you wanted to, you could celebrate Christmas from September onwards.  Should we doing that?

    I think not. ┬áI don’t have an issue with celebrating Christmas during December, that’s expected, however, I don’t think we should be celebrating the season months in advance. ┬áThis year the adverts on tv and online started in September, it’s a bit previous if you get my drift.

    I think it’s time we start celebrating later, and enjoying the special time that Christmas brings, it’s once a year for two weeks (if that) rather than three months of bunting and tinsel.

    Last year here at Rant Towers, we didn’t change the blog for the christmas season but this year we will be, sometimes you’re just Christmassed out.
