I love the hustle & bustle of Christmas… but wait, I mean the kind of hustle & bustle one can experience in a small town, like Perth. We all think of the hustle & bustle as the rush to find the perfect gift, the list of things we need to get done and squeezing in visits & dinners, etc. However, here in Perth we have a magical hustle & bustle happening with so many amazing things to do and experience as Christmas approaches.
Our season is well underway here in Perth and here’s a sampling of what’s happening in December. Hear the beautiful sounds of the St. Paul’s Ladies’ Handbell Choir – outside of the Crystal Palace Friday, Dec. 3rd at 5:30 pm AND The Perth Citizens’ Band Christmas Concert will take place at the Crystal Palace on Sunday, Dec. 19th at 2 pm. The Jolly Man himself will make an appearance in the Perth Santa Claus Parade on Saturday, Dec. 4th – it’s a night-time parade starting at 5 pm.
Perhaps you are experiencing the hustle & bustle of shopping… if so, I sincerely hope you take a moment to enjoy the magic too! Take a stroll through our downtown where you can enjoy the glittering lights and the beautifully decorated storefronts. Stop into your favourite cafe or restaurant and savour a bite to eat, a sweet or a nice warm bevvie. Whatever you choose… cherish the moment, breathe it in…
Just recently Mariposa Design received a beautiful compliment by a customer. After a lady had browsed through the shoppe and then made her purchase, she told me that she had been feeling a bit down about trying to get out and get some shopping done… and then she said, “your store has made me feel so much better – the Christmas music and the feeling of Christmas here is wonderful”.
I love the Christmas season… and for reasons that are far beyond owning a retail shoppe at this time of the year. I love it because of the ‘feeling’ it gives us. A feeling of ‘hope’ and ‘goodness’… Afterall, it is “the most wonderful time of the year”. ~Susan
