The tree is up, the lights are on and the smell of mulled wine wafts through from the kitchen. Yes, it’s that time of year again, the most tatty time of the year – Christmas!
No offence meant by that comment, kids – I love Christmas. And I do take immense joy from the gaudy glitter and paraphernalia that we readily decorate our homes with. No other time of year sees as much tacky nonsense around the house, and I think it’s great.
Here are a couple of items that have been picked up to add to our collection of Yuletide tat.
First up, a small ceramic light up Santa. I picked this up from a local pound shop (my new favourite place!) for just £1. Unbelievable value. A flick of the switch underneath sets off the multi coloured lights within. He’s a jolly little fellow and no mistake, a great little item.
Next we have a Nativity scene, which I bought from B&M for £3.99. Now again, I’ll reiterate that no offence is meant by this piece being in the “tat” section. I happen to think this is a really nice festive decoration. It was only cheap, which is reflected in the lacklustre paint job. But if displayed well this scene looks great.
Hope you like these Crimbo decorations. Have a great Christmas, and thanks for reading Platinum Al’s Virtual Hot Tub.
Stay tuned for more cool stuff in the New Year!
