​Taking Time to Get Off the Christmas Treadmill

20th December 2016

Taking Time to Get Off the Christmas Treadmill

If you're not careful, there is a danger that Christmas can feel like one long to-do list. Buying presents, sending cards, preparing your own body weight in food, forgetting to buy a turkey roasting bag for the umpteenth year in a row... it can be hard to take a step back and actually enjoy the season. That's why it's been so great to be tagging along with the Edwinstowe Lions Club this year on their Santa's Sleigh Runs.

Over the past few weeks, I've taken Warren the Radio Rabbit to meet Santa and the lions at locations around the area, and seeing the looks of wonder on children's faces as they meet Father Christmas (and Warren, of course...) has brought a little bit of the magic back to my Christmas preparations. The Lions have been doing a great job raising money for loads of local causes, so the tradition of thinking of others at this time of year seems to be alive and well.

I'm also hoping this year sees the start of a brand new Mansfield Christmas tradition. The Reverend David Fudger's 'Glory Rap' at our Carol Concert brought a whole new meaning to 'Christmas Wrapping', and is well worth checking out by clicking HERE.  I'm already looking forward to a repeat performance next year - in fact, is it too late to make a bid for this year's Christmas Number 1?
