I live on the top road on my estate and our bungalows are on a bit of a rise, consequently our windows look out over the whole estate, This is particularly true of mine as I have waste ground opposite. One by one the windows I look out on are becoming full of twinkling, flashing Christmas lights. Of course they are not in any way synchronised and looking at them for any length of time is very tiring, so I tend to draw the curtains
and shut them out.
The other thing about them which I don't find pleasing is that the majority of them are electric blue. Since when was this colour seen as 'Christmassy'? I really have no desire, should I decide to stay up on Christmas Eve, to see Santa's sleigh go past festooned in blue. So, if you or one of your elves is reading this then please can we stick to the traditional red, green and gold? If ever someone breeds a holly with blue berries then I will take it on board.
