Countdown to Christmas…

October 20, 2016

So I have become one of those people. Who read a certain special edition of Ideal Home Magazine (Nadia Cardwell) or use a certain festive scented spray (Alan Scobie) at the first inkling that there’s a change in the air and declare…mid October… that the countdown to Christmas has begun.

My next fundraiser is all about Christmas, so I’ve been forced to stop clinging onto summer, ditch my flipflops, and get planning!

Saturday 3rd December is the date you need for your diaries – we are opening the door of Edinburgh Elim and inviting you to the Holy Corner Christmas Countdown. We’ll be running a Christmas café alongside a crafts and home baking fair from 10am to 5pm. If that’s not enough Christmas cheer for you, Annette is holding a Christmas Twinkle Twinkle Sing-along at 10.30am in the Hub for the wee ones, and we are having a Family Christmas Movie Afternoon at 2pm in the big screen in the sanctuary! All for your pennies of course, to help me get to South Africa in February 🙂

Full details and how to get tickets for everything are available at I would love to see you there, whether it’s to buy some crafts, decorations, prints or home baking for presents (or just to scoff right then), have a glass of mulled wine and mince pie in the cafe, watch a film with the family or bring your little ones to Twinkle Twinkle. Or stay for the whole experience!

If you are farther afield than Edinburgh I hope I still manage to get you in the Christmas spirit! And you are welcome to sponsor me at 🙂

And now I’m off to watch Home Alone! Ok maybe not….
