I stepped out for a few hours today from the mountain of work I’m currently scaling.

I was surprised to realise that all of a sudden the dreaded C-word looms large on Sligo’s streets. Lights and gaudy tinsel hangs here, there and everywhere and of course all the shops are presenting gift boxes (Britney Spears’ perfume Circus anyone? No, thought not) and festive cardis featuring inane looking snowmen.

Christmas has well and truly sprung.

I walked through a shopping centre and came upon this eerie spectacle.

We’ve obviously got the rough end of the deal here. I mean, Santy’s representatives on Earth are normally a little less menacing in their appearance. A little less … well, murderous.

This fella, made entirely of heavy duty plastic (saves on the embarrassing knee-wetting moments I suppose), gives me the creeps.

I swear his eyes were THAT red, must’ve been a tough crowd of toddlers yesterday.


What's the craic?
