Signs that Christmas is coming…

#1 : The Coke Lorry tour dates are announced

#2 : The John Lewis advert appears on TV

#3 : Social media is saturated with people complaining that the John Lewis ad is not as good as last year’s

#4 : I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here starts a new series

#5 : Social media is saturated with people complaining that none of the people in the jungle are actual Celebrities at all

#6 : Christmas cake ingredients are bought (note : this rarely translates into the baking of an actual cake…)

#7 : It’s a Wonderful Life, Love Actually, and The Muppets Christmas Carol are taken down from the DVD shelf for their annual airing on dark Sunday afternoons

#8 : Strictly Come Dancing is broadcast live from Blackpool

#9 : Odds on a white Christmas tumble as the Express reports the coming of a new ice age from the second week of December

Three unmistakeable signs that Christmas is coming…

#1 : The John Lewis ad has started appearing between prime time shows on pretty much every commercial television station


#2 : The Coca Cola lorry has been sighted, “Holidays are Coming”, and the dates and venues for the annual tour have been announced


#3 : “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here” returns to our TV screens this evening. Naturally, I don’t watch it myself, but Mrs Pearce is an addict, and some of it seeps into my unconscious without me even realising it!
