Getting ready for Christmas

Yesterday, I noticed that they’ve started selling Christmas trees on the Essex Road.

Christmas trees!
Christmas trees!

It’s a bit early for my taste but I suppose there are people who put up their trees and decorations in the first week of December.  When I was little, one year my Mum decided that we wouldn’t put up a tree until Christmas Eve itself – so we went out on something like 20 December to find that the Christmas tree seller had almost completely sold out.  I think he only had about four trees left and was about to pack up and go home for good.  Come to think of it, I must remember to remember to call Shide trees and order our tree.

There are lots of trees so far
