Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE - Lynn Love

With Christ­mas just five weeks away, Wishaw shop­pers are al­ready pre­par­ing for the big day.

From dec­o­rat­ing trees to buy­ing presents and en­ter­tain­ing guests, Christ­mas is an ex­cit­ing time for many.

We took to the streets to ask if you thought it was too early to start cel­e­brat­ing and what you were most look­ing for­ward to about the fes­tive pe­riod.

Christ­mas fa­natic Denise Kelly said it’s never to early too start cel­e­brat­ing the big day.

Denise, pic­tured with one-year-old Sophia, said: “I love Christ­mas. I’ve been watch­ing Christ­mas films since Septem­ber. It’s never too early to start en­joy­ing it.”

Amelia, said you have to start early to be pre­pared.

Wishaw man Jamie said: “I’ve al­ready started Christ­mas shop­ping. I think you have to start early so you can af­ford ev­ery­thing you need to buy now. Christ­mas is re­ally ex­pen­sive.”

Lit­tle Amelia said she is su­per ex­cited about Christ­mas. She said: “I can’t wait for Santa to come. I’ve asked for an LOL House.”

New­mains cou­ple Jack and Lil­ian Young said Christ­mas is too com­mer­cialised now.

Jack added: “Christ­mas isn’t the same any­more. The Christ­mas spirit seems to have gone. It’s just all about the money now. I still like to wait to go out and buy my presents on Christ­mas Eve. That’s when I al­ways buy Lil­ian’s and she al­ways likes what I get her.”
