Hi SL Fabz,
Christmas is just around the corner, Whoop!! Whoop!!
The excitement is in the air and I have a spring in my steps today. I can almost smell Christmas and the frenzy for last minute Christmas shopping is on the high. It’s just about noon and the shops and markets are already filled up!
A friend came to see me this morning before going shopping and when I saw her Christmas shopping list, I had a good laugh. She was going to buy 7 Chickens for 7 Family Friends. When I asked, ‘Why not give a gift or a hamper instead of a chicken?‘ she said ‘What’s Christmas without a chicken? And I don’t mean any chicken. A live chicken that you kill at home.’
It made me remember the excitement I used to have as a child whenever we killed a chicken during Christmas. Those were fun days. There is something different about having all the parts of the chicken dancing in your pot rather than just the laps. And of course the taste is different and better!
But before I make this post about chickens, let’s get back to the topic of the day. Are you shopping today? What is the most important thing you must buy this Christmas either for yourself or for family?
