|Scrooge and the Ghost of|
However, whilst I have been sat on train listening to some of Michael Buble’s finest Christmas tunes, others have been accusing me and other like-minded people of deducting the true festive feel from December. If I had a pound for every time I’ve been told in the last few weeks that it’s not Christmas, I’m getting excited too soon and that I need to calm down, I'd definitely have enough funds to buy all of my Christmas gifts and more. So the question is, has Christmas really come too early? Or are the majority of the British population being too much like Scrooge?
I would argue that Christmas is nearing closer every day and that the build up to Christmas is the best part and it’s impossible for it to arrive too soon. If you put it into perspective, months fly by as it is, and before you know it you’re celebrating the New Year, so what does it matter how long certain people big something up as opposed to others? Surely it makes sense that we prolong the build-up and the excitement because it gives us something to get us through the long, cold winter months. Not only that but in the grand scheme of things, what does an extra four weeks matter when the shops are putting their adverts out anyway? In theory it makes more sense that we prepare ourselves in advance and allow the spirits of Christmas to make an appearance when they feel like it.
