Advent Calendar Door 19 - Oh Christmas Tree

December 19th

My nineteenth Advent calendar door has now opened revealing Peterborough's Cathedral Square at dusk with the Guild Hall, pop up Christmas huts and of course the Christmas Tree.

I am now enjoying late night gift shopping which fills me with a lot more excitement than the bumping and haste of during the day.  This has become a regular ritual each year, dinner has been eaten, the relaying of what has happened during the day spoken, a change into more comfortable clothes and then back go on the gloves and coats and out we go again, this time as a family into the night.  One of the main things we enjoy is to go into a coffee bar and order hot chocolate with all the trimmings, just to warm up a little you understand, and then walk around the shops at a more leisurely pace.  This pace is just perfect for me at the moment as my tiredness from the beginning of the week is settling in.

Today is the Business and Shopper's Carol Service at Peterborough Cathedral, so this will be a nice time to have a sing song with those who I work with and the busy shoppers.

Enjoy your day!
