It's August so Happy Christmas!

Saturday, 6 August 2016

On Monday, Selfridges, in London, revealed their ‘summer Christmas shop’ – and it’s covered in festive cheer.

Almost the entirety of the Oxford Street store’s forth floor has been transformed into a ‘Shine on’ winter wonderland with 50,000 decorations on display.

The eager store has claimed that the 2016 opening is the world’s earliest, and it will be further expanded in autumn.

Christmas Explained, from A(dvent) to Z(oophagous)

Tuesday, 1 December 2015

It's 1st December again, the night's have drawn in, there's a distinct chill in the air, and what better way is there to prepare yourself for the coming of Christmas than to dip into Christmas Explained - Robins, Kings and Brussel Sprouts every day in Advent.

You'll discover all sorts of fascinating Yuletide facts, including the origins of the Advent calendar, the origins of Yule, and the origins of the traditional family pantomime.

Christmas Explained is available now from Snowbooks (appropriately enough) and via Amazon.

Oh, and if you'll able to (and up early enough), why not tune in to BBC Radio Wiltshire this morning between 8.00am and 8.30am, when I will be making an 'appearance' on Ben Prater's show?

Happy St Andrew's Day from Scottish Miscellany!

Monday, 30 November 2015

Seeing as how it's St Andrew's Day - hello to all my Scottish fans - I thought it worth reminding you that I wrote a book about all things Scottish, once upon a time.

And do you know what's really good about this book? My Scottish Miscellany is now in a new edition - and yes, you did read that right, it does say that I'm the best-selling author of Skyhorse Publishing's Christmas Miscellany. Speaking of which, it's 1st December tomorrow...
