Buying a tin of chocolates is a must at Christmas, I don't know if this is a tradition particular to the British or not, perhaps someone will tell us in the comments? But, If you live in the UK you will see tins of chocolates appearing in the supermarkets from August.
I bought a tin of Quality Street and a tin of Roses quite a few weeks ago now, I bought the Emma Bridgwater limited edition tin of Roses because I liked the tin, no idea what I will use it for later, but I liked it, it's more like they used to be when I was growing up, before they started putting them in plastic tubs,
Something else we only do at Christmas time is buy a TV guide.
I don't watch TV, I watch only what I want to watch on catch-up, we have Netflix if we want to watch a film or a series but it's nice to see what's on over the holiday. I'll be having a browse through this at the weekend to see if there is anything I fancy.
Here are today's lovely minis, not many days left now.
Take care, see you tomorrow
