Christmas Temptations

We all secretly know that at the end of the day, Christmas is all about the food and getting together with the family.. Well, and about the presents of course. I suppose it depends how old you are. There is that bit about spending tonnes of money as well. Some people like that, mind you. Imagine, we all spend so much money for something that goes out in a flash and with a bang in about 24 hours. Fantastic, isn’t it?! So to tease you a little bit I give my selection of scrumptious Christmas images.   Nothing like a feast for the eyes, especially when Christmas is literally just around the […]

Galway magic at Christmas time

Every year, a few days before Christmas we  go to Galway visiting the Christmas market, then strolling through the city in the dark, admiring the decorated windows and soaking up the festive feeling in the air.  This is a part of our celebrations and there is something really lovely in walking on Shop street at Christmas time, all the lights are bright and colourful, there is a lot of people around, everyone is happy and chatting away, there are tempting  aromas floating from everywhere from all the cafes,food stalls and shops. Enjoy the symphony of colours and lights and that gorgeous feeling of Christmas just around the corner… It is a feast for the eyes, the best you can do while the Christmas mood is in full swing – go […]

I think I am getting a bit touchy at the word “Christmas”.  I remember when my kids were in primary school their teacher had forbidden anyone to mention the “C WORD” until a week before the actual event when anyone could repeat it freely and non stop (probably they did :mrgreen:) I think she had a good point! Getting too excited over Christmas and too early at that, certainly spoils all the fun. Like this year for example. Galway city got festively decorated in the very beginning of November. WHAT THE CRAIC?! Beginning of November!? Am I the only one that finds it a bit early? Halloween decorations were still on […]
