Happy Halloween From Frosty

I met this chap during my lunchtime stroll around Belfast today. He looked so happy and pleased with himself that I hadn’t the heart to tell him that he had in fact turned up two months early for the wrong holiday. Maybe someone will take him to one side and have a quite word with him. Or is it her? Or them? I’m afraid I didn’t hang about long enough to find out as I was only on a 35 minute break.

There have been sightings of Christmas trees up already in houses as people seek to bring some early festive cheer to their lives. I can fully understand folk doing this as it’s been a pretty awful year for us all. Apart from the people in the bungalow outside our village who insist on keeping their outside Christmas lights up all year round. I’m a reasonable man but I’m sorry, that’s unforgivable. There’s no middle ground. It’s a firm no from me.

Certain members of the Black household have already made not so subtle overtures for me to drag my battered body into the roof space to bring down the Christmas decorations. I’ve resisted to date but am starting to crack under the relentless pressure. I wandered into the kitchen the other day to find a Hallmark Christmas movie on. I won’t detail the plot as everyone knows there only is one plot to every Hallmark Christmas movie ever made.

I’m sure Frosty would find a home if he called by our place. 2020 has been such a topsy turvy year I fully expect to see the Easter Bunny by the second week in November. April Fools Day will be brought forward to early December and we all be eating our Christmas dinner on the beach like they do in Australia. Frosty knows best after all. It’s beginning to look a bit like Christmas. An extra special Covid Christmas.

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. I’m afraid I can’t get excited about Christmas this early. Mr (or Mrs or whatever) Frost would do well here though as snow was falling yesterday. Thankfully it was only a dusting and the temperature is rising again for this coming weekend.


  2. Keep up the resistance! It is WAAAY too early for going all Christmas-y. Even though we have snow up to the middle of our calves here in Northern Colorado, we have deemed premature Christmas decorating illegal and punishable by intense shaming.


  3. Over the last few weeks we have been gathering our Christmas lights and decorations, made a key purchase (Santa riding on a shark) and started preparing the garden and so on. Then last night Linda shows me my new shirts for Christmas: Grumpy wrapped in Christmas tree lights, Father Christmas at the beach, Santa Homer boxer shorts… 😂🤣😂
