FOWC with Fandango — Magical

This time of year is usually a magical time, especially for kids (and me when we went into the garden centre the other week).
It’s a shame it’s too commercialised by far, and the price of festive and traditional goodies increases to line someone else’s pocket, but as adults, we’re not supposed to mind that, so intent are we in bringing something special to our families.
Years ago I loved to see the kiddies happy and excited faces as they queued to see Father Christmas, a rosy cheeked figure larger than life with a belly to match. He’d sit on a throne in a magical grotto surrounded by elves and automaton animals.
It’s rare to see something like that today…………… Santa might be the same, but the kids?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Everything is changing. Is change the antithesis of tradition?
