‘Tis (almost) the season

I admit it, sometimes I may come across as a bit ‘bah humbug’ about Christmas and for that I apologise. I actually love it; the time off with family and friends, the presents, the food, good will and cheer. Yep, it’s fab. I’m not that keen on it beginning just as Easter ends…

However, now that I can see the end of November peeking at me, I will concede that it is (almost) the season to be jolly. The Christmas books are on display, decorations are not up yet, but have had a thorough dusting and I feel almost ready!

Next week our window is going to be transformed into a miniature set from Brentwood Theatre‘s Hansel and Gretel, by the super talented Emma. And then the Light Up will be upon us, so it really is about time I embraced the whole thing.

With that in mind, we have come up with some lovely activities to keep the children busy over the Christmas holidays. You can find them all here or on our Face Book page. Do check them out. As Christmas is an expensive affair, we have kept costs to an absolute minimum and you can always pop in for a story whenever the urge takes you!
