On Thursday night me and the other half visited the Trafford Centre in Manchester. If you're from outside of the UK, then the Trafford Centre is a huuuuge inside shopping centre that has lots of designer/high street brands all in one place, with eateries and shops galore! (My favourite shop is Selfridges.... MAC!)

Every year the Trafford Centre hold a Christmas lights event in which they invite a few famous faces on stage for the build up to the switching on of the lights, this year saw the likes of Union J, Neon Jungle, Paul Potts and others. Although we never made it in time for the actual light switch on, we did however go to see the 'famous' Christmas tree. It is a lovely thing but it's no Rockefeller Christmas tree!

I had a throughly lovely evening and must admit I felt a little festive too-

so what do you think, is it too early to be celebrating Christmas? It might be the 1st of November but this event was hosted on the 30th October. Are we losing the whole art of Christmas completely? Celebrating too early that once Christmas arrives you're not actually excited?


  1. No way! It's never too early to celebrate Christmas! Haha
    I always think the lead up to Christmas is far better than the actual day itself! There's something so rewarding about giving gifts and doing things for others.




    1. I think I have to agree!
      Once Christmas Day arrives it's all over :( (sad times) and I completely agree, I would much rather give than receive, it's so lovely to see someone thoroughly enjoy the gift you've put time and effort into :)
