Christ­mas Ad­verts

Black Country Bugle - - YOUR LETTERS - By Janet Oakey

We’ve all en­joyed the beau­ti­ful hot sum­mer days Now Au­tumn is here – they’ve van­ished in a haze. But what’s go­ing on With all these tele­vi­sion alerts? We’re be­ing bom­barded with Christ­mas ad­verts!

As lovely as they are, It’s way too early for fes­tive mode And I re­ally think they should be put on hold We keep see­ing huge ta­bles, full of gor­geous food But it’s still too soon to get into the mood.

Great sizzling tur­keys fill our screen Piles of pud­dings and cakes, full of cream Flash­ing lights on the Christ­mas trees Hoards of toys, chil­dren choos­ing pressies.

Then we have the nu­mer­ous sofa sales How bor­ing We’re fed up al­ready with ad­verts Which have us all yawn­ing! Be­gin­ning of De­cem­ber would be bet­ter When Santa is pre­par­ing to pile his sleigh high To de­liver lots of presents And bring chil­dren so much joy.

So, if the ad­verts get on your nerves, Just mute the noise And keep happy and cheer­ful Ready for your Christ­mas sur­prise!
