Every year we love to see the fabulous Christmas tree in Bournville lit up, it’s a delight to pass by but it’s also fun to go and watch the Christmas lights being switched on. Last year it wasn’t made into an event because of the Covid restrictions, but this year it was all on again and the crowds were out in force despite the cold weather. We actually woke up to snow in the morning and the wind was fierce.
This year we were lucky enough to know about the disabled car park which is right next to the tree. My girls had already been dropped off to look around the stalls and entertainment but were freezing by the time we got there so we stood outside and they sat in the car to watch the Christmas lights being switched on. I guess Christmas 2021 has begun now!
We had a walk around with the Little Man but there was too many people and so many steps. We skirted around the outside not being able to get near enough to actually see any of the stalls or shops. Then we got back in the car and went home.
It was a lovely end to the week. I also had a fabulous day on Friday as it was my birthday and I was really spoilt by everyone.
We had a lovely take out from the Japanese and the kids had Dominoes. Then we played Jackbox.tv together as a family and had a good giggle.
Now I just have to work out when or how I’m going to put the Christmas tree and decorations up at home. Do you have your decorations up yet?
