Today was Christmas lights switch on, in my local town of Mansfield. The plan was to arrive about an hour before light switch on, enjoying the music and what ever else prior to then. Now I know it would bring in crowds, but as I have not been to a local event like this before, I did not really know what to expect to be honest. But I was hoping it would not feel crowdy, like a tin of sardines. But it was, so I was down there just 20 minutes, before walking back home.
Back home, I played on a game on my phone I downloaded for free a few days ago, with some reading in between of a book called “Sea Changes,” by Robert Goddard and the Christmas tree will go up tonight.
I plan to avoid Black Friday. I shall stay at home that day, again, avoiding the crowd that might happen for this event.
I have been catching up over the last few weeks on DVD, “The Walking Dead, season 8” and “Wentworth Prison season 6.” I now await next year for the new seasons to come out and carry on where I have left off, once they are out on DVD.
Have you ever been to your local Christmas light switch on?
Do you avoid the crowds on events like I’ve mentioned, or similar?
What have you been doing over the weekend?
