I’d hate them to stop putting on Christmas markets, especially here in Edinburgh. They add such a pleasant atmosphere, a sense of occasion and anticipation. They fill up a whopping 6 winter weeks (that’s pretty much half of the winter) with outdoor options. And boy do we need things to brighten up those long dark evenings.
Cue the miserabilism
The trouble is, I won’t end up going to one. Why? I don’t need any of the stuff. But don’t follow my example. Go! Enjoy! Let me know that other people are doing the festive thing. Let people film you while you’re at it. Because Christmas looks great on my TV screen.
(It’s still too early to rant about the jumpers.)
