For some reason the Co-op has chosen purple for it's christmas decorations and signs this year rather than the more traditional red.
I've actually done most of my christmas shopping -- not that I do much these days. I always buy the food at the last minute because there's only the two of us. The offspring do their own christmases and we've never been ones for company or entertaining. The plan is to have a peaceful time, relaxing as much as possible.
