Overall, a very merry start to Christmas, with a particular thank you to Grandma E for not only taking care of all the catering for her stay, but also giving us a very very generous Christmas present!

But to me, our local Big W Gungahlin Marketplace's Christmas display really symbolised all that's wrong with the seasonal festivities.
Exhibit A: A nativity scene padlocked in a box sitting un-noticed behind the Santa stage. Naturally, there are no animals or humble shepherds, but there's room for the three kings bearing their expensive gifts.

Definitely an un-goddess-like moment!
We were SO close to the front that we were covered in sparkles and coloured paper - The Little Prince took the indignity very well! I had a fantastic time, and think Sam makes a fantastic Wiggle. The Wiggles have come a long way since I took the Ginger Ninja and a baby Possum to see them in a church hall in a small country town!

Little BT's cookies, and
Of course, we ate far too many cookies ourselves...

Grandad B and Nana R treated us to a meal at their club, and there just happened to be a Santa in the function room...
But perhaps there'll be another Santa before Christmas and I can convince them all to pose nicely at the one time...

They finished the carols with some very impressive fireworks that helped wake up Ginger Rose and the Little Prince for the drive home. It was a very sleepy carful that finally pulled into the drive at 10.30pm, but a cheerful fast food dinner at 10.40pm with all participants (except moi) asleep by 11pm.
Asleep and dreaming of two lots of carols to come tomorrow, no doubt.
