As most of you probably know if you follow me on facebook, Dominic has been asking for the "chrisamus tree" for weeks. Most years it doesn't go up until a few days before Christmas proper because we are concerned about breakage. Also most years he does not seem to be even a little bit aware of it. So it's tremendously exciting but he asked for it. We put it up yesterday afternoon. Now he is asking for presents.
After dinner, Dominic came in to the house sat down in the big brown chair, wrapped himself up in his Blankey, and happily gazed upon the flickering lights of the tree.
