I spent last Sunday putting up a Christmas Tree just outside my husband’s shop. Here’s a picture of it, as you can see it’s a big tree and it took us ages to put up. You might think it’s a bit early to put up a Christmas Tree but the reason we had to do it this weekend is because on Thursday the Victorian Fayre came to Worcester, where we live, so everyone is busy the week beforehand putting up the Christmas lights and Christmas trees to give the town a festive air.
I love the Victorian Fayre, it lasts for four days from 28th November to 1st December and traders come from all over the country to it. Lots of market stalls are put up in the streets selling everything from hand-made goods, scented candles, Christmas decorations, hot chocolate, tasty cheeses, mulled wine and sweets. A lot of the traders dress up in Victorian clothes and it’s a really festive atmosphere. There’s carol singers too and even a funfair with rides to go on. To me, it’s the start of Christmas.
What’s the start of Christmas for you?
