Forrest’s Christmas Carol


Well what can I say except Christmas really is the best time of year. Everyone is together in a room that is filled with laughter and happiness. It is a celebration of jubilation!

You can see in the windows at Liberty Living people putting up Christmas trees and decorating the place. I got too excited using snow spray on my window to the point where I could barely see anything. I made a patch clear so I could see sunlight at least.

I love Christmas reads such as: Dickens’ A Christmas Carol (The Simon Callow copy, A Dickens’ Christmas: A Victorian Celebration) is a particular favourite of mine. Dr Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas, (now come on that is a classic). Jim Carrey ruined The Grinch!

I even enjoy Midnight Mass, the ambience of it, I love belting out those Christmas hymns! Once in Royal David’s City stood a lowly cattle shed… lucky for you readers that there isn’t a recording spot on the Liberty Living website where I read these blogs out loud. Singing Once in Royal David’s City might not go down so well.

When everyone is in a festive mood, the atmosphere is enchanting! Christmas pantomimes are magical and just superbly wonderful. My family and I have so many happy memories of seeing Bradley Walsh act in panto. They are fun for all the family! I am disgusted with myself admittedly that I have not seen Lesley Joseph in a pantomime and she has been starring in pantomimes for the last twenty-five years. (Sorry I don’t mean to keep mentioning my lady in my blogs, I will stop… maybe after Blog seventy-eight).

Then after Christmas the year comes to a close, hopefully people can look back with fond memories and happy times that they have had throughout 2014. To be honest I am looking forward to 2015 because I think the figures itself 2015 looks amazing. My favourite numbers are the eights but 2015 does look good. (Sorry I am waffling now)!


Favourite Christmas Jokes

1. Why can’t you give Santa Clause the sack?
Because he’s already got one!

2. What did Santa say to the smoker?
Please don’t smoke, it’s bad for my elf.
3. What did Adam say to his wife on the day before Christmas?
It’s Christmas, Eve

I would love to say that I came up with these jokes myself but I am not that funny!
