Never let it be said that we don’t know how to keep Christmas in our hearts here at The Daily Constitutional.
But keeping Christmas in November – and October for that matter! – is another kettle of Bah Humbug all together.
We blogged about this last year, making the case for the adoption of Thanksgiving here in the UK on that grounds that the great North American festival of celebration and family at least keeps the madness of Christmas at bay until the proper time.
And the proper time is DECEMBER.
And now we just look like a bunch of grumpy old farts, don’t we.
So, we’ve joined in with the Christmas in November malarkey. And you can, too.
Charity Christmas cards are on sale at churches up and down London thanks to Card Aid. This afternoon on David’s Kensington Walk (2pm High Street Kensington station), for example, you can pop into St Mary Abbots and buy them there…
… or if you join the Behind Closed Doors walk on Tuesday morning (meets at Covent Garden Station at 10:30a.m) you can swing by St Paul’s…
Here’s a quick word from Card Aid:
“Our shops offer an unrivalled range of cards, together with assurance that ALL profits from the cards you are buying are going to charity.”
A London Walk costs £9 – £7 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
