Re: It's almost Christmas!

Well of course - those were the words of a five year old - who knew no-one among friends, family and neighbours - to have real candles lit on the tree. The perception of a small child on Christmas day - which we thought was very sweet.

And to illustrate DB's OP- that many of us, and our children with us- do experience a mix of cultures growing up abroad. And yes, the world has changed. Where my first daughter was born in 73, in Newcastle Staffs- I was the only foreign mum in the street and for many streets around. And where second one was born, in Leics, in 75- same again. In the street, and in the whole village actually. So they were perhaps even more aware of differences.
