Last Tuesday

Records were set when, last Tuesday the 6th November, I used the Exclusive Books store in Canal Walk as a cut through to get to Sportsman’s Whorehouse and aurally encountered this:

Wham!’s Xmas offering has long been held as my official notice that the Christmas shopping period has begun and madness may now officially ensue. Other signs – fake plastic trees and the like – have been around for a while, but it’s not really Christmas shopping hell until you’ve heard “Last Christmas”.

There seemed no more appropriate place to realise this than in Canal Walk.

  1. @capetowngirl1 will scratch your eyes out if you dis her beloved George and anything to do with him

  2. I can’t help but smile whenever I hear this song…you’re right, when you hear it – you KNOW that Christmas is around the corner. I suppose we’ll be hearing Boney M, Mariah Carey, Josh Groban and Michael Buble very soon.

  3. I tend to go with anything from Boney M as the main sign that yes, we do in fact know it’s Christmas time at all…if you’ll pardon the poor grammar in the interests of sounding clever.

  4. Ronnie > Does that include comments about his hair and/or his lovely jumper?

    Melanie Chisnall > You’ve put me right off shopping malls. And hearing in general.

    Gary > Pardoned. Despite the second mention of Boney M in this comments thread.
