The Beatles Christmas bauble

I said I wasn’t going to “do” Christmas this year. As we’re off abroad, I wasn’t even going to get a tree. And then, at the weekend, London went bonkers for Chrimbo. I’d never usually put decorations up in the first week of December, but this year, it’s all the rage. Even the posh types have their gigantic trees trimmed up and looking chic.

And the final straw? The Beatles bauble. A lovely piece of official merchandise, on a Yellow Submarine, perfect for my Fab Four-obsessed family.

So off we popped to Asda (Christmas though, innit) to buy a wee tree (there have to be some compromises) and now it feels like Chrimbo is really underway. Early, yes. But who’s counting?

The Fab Four sitting pretty next to Santa: it’s Chriiiistmas!
