It is a tradition in our house to fill stockings for the children. This year our two youngest and unmarried children (aged 25 and 28) will be with us. I have just added final trimmings to the stockings. A 30p card game (Old Maid and Donkey), a 20p lollipop, a chocolate orange and a pencil. All the while playing an absolutely dreadful Christmas CD: Timeless Christmas Classics. Pat Boone, Burl Ives, Beverly Shea and George Hamilton IV. They are anything but timeless. They are frozen in time - about 1957 I think.
