    Thought I would start one of these as I do every year :xmas12:

    I haven't got much to put in it yet as we don't have many ideas for the kids :haha:

    I was excited before to see a small Christmas section in Aldi. They had things like mince pies, Christmas cake/pudding and Christmas-present type chocolates like Celebrations :)

    Following! You mentioning mince pies reminded me of the "what Christmassy things have you done today?" thread we usually have so I'm off to post that :haha:

    Holly watched The Snowman film at school yesterday. Seems a random thing to do in September but I was excited to hear they're doing fun Christmas things already, especially as so much will be cancelled this year like school plays etc!

    Following. I managed to resist the Aldi mince pies the other day in Aldi. After all the home baking in lockdown, I'm quite tempted to have a go at making my own this year.

    My dd watches the snowman and snowdog all year round. I can't watch it, its too sad :sad2:

    Yummy. My DH got some from the co-op. They were the puff pastry ones so not my favourite but I couldn't resist not having one
