This week I had a pleasure to attend the Spirit of Christmas fair, which was a true enjoyment. The show offers an early start to the Christmas season, but without the crazy rush to perform the best in the limited time that most of us experience. Be it the mad rush to buy presents or attempts to cook the best meal ever. Most of us were there and it is no fun. So I was grateful for an opportunity to relax and actually enjoy the festivity with its citrus smell mixed with the scent of mulled wine and freshly cut greenery without any rush.
The show offers a unique selection of stands so everyone can find something special and a fantastic selection of interactive workshops going on during the day, so you can learn a new craft that would help you to make your Christmas extra special this year.
This show is quite different to the other Christmas fairs not only due to the array of independent boutiques selling unique gift ideas, but also because of the flower arranging tutorials that run through from Monday to Saturday.
