Just for the record; the Christmas Tree, erected on 17th November last year across from the P.I., still stands in Govan this night.
It is still surrounded by its wire barricade and the lights are still draped around it. It's kept its needles quite well.
I have no camera to record it, and on that note, the lack of camera meant I couldn't get photos of the card shop at Christmas - so the exercise of following the Christian calendar for a year has been granted an extension into 2011.
Did I hear a groan? Or was it the Christmas Tree?
