Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 21st November, 2018)
He makes a brilliant Father Christmas, doesn't he?! Lovely!
Yes, he does, but he's still far too early.....
I agree, Rosie! It gets earlier and earlier and by the time it arrives, everyone is fed up of it! But at least it's still "Christmas" here and not "The Holidays"! That's something it never will be for me!
It's KRIS KRINGLE from COLE'S DEPARTMENT STORE...
Irene my brother has lived in the US for years, he has rebelled against the.... Happy Holidays....greeting & insists he get cards which wish everyone....A Merry Christmas !
Also HAPPY Christmas has crept in. I can't/don't ever remember wishing anyone a HAPPY Christmas, always a MERRY Christmas and a HAPPY new year.
Lovely picture but not just now.... please.
A bit of a spectacle!
Yes Irene, you are right, it does seem to be thrust upon us earlier every year ! I I was thinking about when we used to make decorations at primary school(coloured paper rings, threaded together) to festoon the classrooms. You knew Christmas was almost here then. It was probably only in the last 2 weeks before Christmas. Also, considering that we hardly had any labour-saving devices, everyting got done. Having said all that, I love it when Christmas is here.
Hes got a mucky looking glove, and cuff on his jacket.
But its still a cracking photo of a merry looking father christmas, Im sure the young children will be amazed at seeing him arriving in Wigan
Santa ( Saint Nicholas) Clause... The true meaning of Christmas is beng overlooked these days. I must say it's far too soon it's not even Advent until December...
Looks the part for sure.
Well done to your brother, Helen! Lovely memories of Christmas at primary school, Rosie!
Great photo. How much did they pay you Mick to be Santa for a day, where's the bike?
I had to do a double take as I to thought it was Kriss Kringle - what an excellent looking Father Christmas.
Anne, I think The Queen has always said, "A Happy Christmas To You All" in her Christmas speech, (We don't usually watch it so I can't be sure).
having lived in the usa 18yrs I still hate "happy holidays".
I always look for "Merry Christmas" cards to send to the UK.
Well done, britboy!
