I love Christmas.
There. I said it.
I’m not ashamed to be one of the people who gets excited hearing Slade played in shops in November. It makes me happy.
It’s not the actual day so much, which tends to be a bit of an anti-climax, dominated by that slightly over-full-probably-shouldn’t-have-had-bucksfizz-for-breakfast feeling, it’s the build up I love. And the longer the better in my opinion. The smell of a Christmas tree in the morning, choosing presents, eating mince pies and brandy butter for breakfast. It’s all good.
To try and get even the scroogiest of readers into the Christmas spirit, I’m giving you the chance to win £100 to spend on presents in the Tesco Christmas Gift Guide. One hundred whole quid. That’s not too shoddy is it?
To get your name into the lucky Santa hat, all you have to do is sign up to receive my blog posts by email if you don’t already, (at the top of the left sidebar), and leave a comment on this post telling me your favourite thing about Christmas. It’s not compulsory, but if you’d like to also share this post via twitter, facebook, your own blog, carrier pigeon etc, that would be smashing, and very in keeping with it being the season of goodwill to all men.
The competition will close at the end of November, and a winner will be announced as soon after that as I remember to do it.
If you’d like even more chances to win stuff, and who doesn’t, Tesco have told me they’ll be giving away gift vouchers on twitter, so following them would probably be a good idea – www.twitter.com/tescomagazine
