I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays. The end of another year. How time flies.
My Christmas is quiet this year. My brother and sister are away in Edinburgh celebrating with their families. I am here with my husband and we went to my parents to have a meal with them. My husband and I do not celebrate Christmas as such, but I have lived here all my life and it is really nice to celebrate with family and friends. It is a lovely time of year for everyone to get together.
In Aberdeen, Christmas Day is so quiet, apart from the occasional horn sounding from cars outside picking people up to take to parties. There are no buses, everything is closed, it is like a ghost town.
However, I woke up this boxing day to be pleasantly surprised to find a blanket of snow outside, not sure if it will last. Snow is not a regular occurrence as it was in the past.
I am going to take a wander into the shops and have a browse around the sales. After the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping, everyone heads to the shops again to pick up a bargain.
The next stage of the festive season is to look forward to the New Year.
