Christmas is coming!

Aaargh! I can't believe it's almost December. I can't believe we start carolling tomorrow evening. I can't believe Christmas is on the way.

I've spent today putting together the meeting plans for our community carol concert and a concert we are doing at Ladybank Parish Church and, while it feels good to have got the work done, it actually feels really early.

Perhaps it's just that this year has been very busy or something - having Amy certainly changes things. Or perhaps I actually feel like this every year and then conveniently forget about it until the next year? Who knows... I probably won't remember to look back next Christmas and read this or anything.

I try to enjoy Christmas early... like in about October. No, seriously, I started listening to Christmas music really early this year. I don't know why I do that, but I think it might be because I subconsciously know that December isn't going to be a time for "enjoying" Christmas, what with the toy appeal, the carolling programme, present buying and so on making for a very busy time. But at the end of it all, Christmas day, there's a huge release as everything stops (well, except for a very relaxed and short meeting), and we can finally spend time celebrating Christ's birth as a family.

Oh, and while I was searching on Flickr for pictures of Salvation Army bands carolling, I found this one of some of the folks from Edinburgh City and Gorgie corps.
