Well its got to that time of the year when I dust off MRJ 195 and re read Chris Pendeltons classic illustrated article about parcels traffic. This has become something of a personal tradition for me but do you have any similar traditions? Do you run mince pie specials, scatter a bit of scenic snow or have a favourite book or magazine to read?  This is a time of the year when the nostalgia index goes off scale so I am sure it would be interesting to know modelling tradition makes your Christmas.

I love Christmas traditions; lights twinkling in peoples front rooms, the general bonhomie,  

 

The adverts on the television:- "WE ARE OPEN ON BOXING DAY! DOUBLE DISCOUNTS! COME AND BUY A SOFA! Yeah, right....

 

The excited looks on the children's faces.... Easter eggs in Tescos..... The queue of faulty goods returned at Argos......

This is the time of year when I always think about doing a snow scene diorama, or possibly even a snow-themed working layout.

 

I've never actually built one, but I do have a very long-standing tradition of thinking about it.

My recently acquired Christmas tradition is to think about all the time I'm going to have to finish off a kit and then come the 27th, wonder where the time went and the kit remains exactly as it was on the 23rd

 

It's going to plan so far.

Sounds like we have the same Christmas tradition.
