So far I have avoided anything Christmas, not that I’m trying to avoid it, it’s just that I don’t get out much!
We did a bit of shopping of Sunday after returning from the in-laws, but there wasn’t the slightest hint of Christmas in the shops, no lights, no decorations and no Slade! The trip skirted round any towns and the villages we passed through hadn’t decked the halls. It seems that the commercial giant hasn’t yet reached the rural South West of Poland yet, maybe it’s stuck in the snow?
But tomorrow is the 6th of December, the big day for kids in Poland as it’s St. Nicks days, the day when presents are dished out to all who have been good for the preceding year, or so I keep telling Malina. Sadly her attention span or memory doesn’t operate beyond the last ten minutes, but I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt, kind hearted soul that I am, and gifts will be wrapped this evening.
Thankfully we have got the one vital ingredient of Christmas, snow, and lots of it, which means that re-enactments of scenes from Frozen and the sun loving snowman Olaf are the order of the day.
Not that it makes traveling easy, but as I said in the beginning, I don’t get out much.
