“I heard the bells on Christmas Day, Their old, familiar carols play, And wild and sweet the words repeat, Of peace on earth, good-will to men!” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow”
Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas!….Wait, that must mean it’s December already!
It does not seem like 12 months have passed since I last wrote to you about Christmas. Time truly does fly when you’re having fun! Do you get excited about Christmas? I still do! Christmas is a magical time of year, especially for children. Have your children written their lists for Santa yet? Children around the world are counting down the days until they hear the sleigh bells ringing and the clip-clop of Rudolph’s hooves, signalling that Father Christmas has paid a visit. Most adults, however, will be focusing all their energy on buying that perfect Christmas present for their loved ones and making sure that they have not forgotten anything for the Christmas dinner. I don’t know about you, but no matter how hard I try to be organised, there is always something I forget! Oh well, there’s always next year to try again to get it right.
November saw the nation acknowledge those who have died in conflict; past and present with Remembrance Day Services across the world. Poppy wreaths were laid by representatives from our community at various services in our area. Our photographer was at the Remembrance Service by St Margaret’s Church, Altrincham and all the photographs taken on the day can be found on our website and downloaded free of charge (www.haahandbook.co.uk).
As usual, our local shopping centres will be decorating the streets with Christmas lights and festive cheer. Altrincham is once again holding their Christmas markets and more details can be found on page 22.
Thank you for reading and supporting the Sale, Hale & Altrincham Handbook over the last 12 months.
