Went to the local garden centre because I’d been told they had a purple Christmas tree. They did and pretty spectacular it was too. Actually it was lilac and rather chic with white baubles. Mind you, it is a fine line between chic and tacky. I went for chic – but then I would. However, it didn’t appear to be for sale so I just adored from a distance.
The other thing which caught my eye was the plethora of village scenes which light up with fibre optics, play music, move skaters round a pond or a train round the village. There were loads of them. Why would people want a village inside their house?
And not a nativity scene in sight. Not even a fibre optic one. I know, because I looked. Very hard. Now that would be something.
