It's beginning to look a little like Christmas!
Here in Adelaide we have a Christmas pageant in the beginning of November. It's been running since the depression and is a great Adelaide tradition. It was started by a department store (which has since closed down) and is run now by the credit unions. It is the day that Father Christmas comes to Adelaide and we all start thinking "Christmas" very early, which stores like a lot! It is a tradition in many Adelaide homes to put the Christmas tree up after coming home from the pageant. Well, our tree isn't up yet (Mr 8 is not happy!), but I sewed these Christmas aprons yesterday. So, it's looking a little like Christmas at our house, and now we can start baking Christmas goodies!
