I’ve always felt sorry for anyone with a birthday around Christmas in case they miss out. Some parents celebrate the half birthday or on a different day in December, but over the past few years, Hubby and I have got really cheesed off with all the hype that is associated with The Festive Season, the cost, the hassle of shopping, and the constant in your face merry advertisements when all we see are disgruntled brats and harassed parents.
You may remember my card making sessions a little while ago:
Apart from the Anniversary one on the bottom right, they all had general greetings with Thinking of You or Best Wishes, though some had nothing on the front at all.
I’ve sent three with ‘Thinking of You’ out already, but now I’ve finally printed off my poem for our 10 unofficial ‘Christmas’ cards to be sent out in the post.
Before you think we’ve flipped our lids,
Let me just explain:
Christmas Spirit has been lost
And things are not the same.
Too commercialised by far
Presents are expensive to buy,
So we thought we’d bring it forward a bit
And celebrate in July.
We hope to raise a happy smile
That fills you with good cheer,
And let you know you’re thought about
More than once a year!
Happy Half Year everyone!
