The First Mince Pie of the Year

For the last few weeks, there have been a lot of people on Twitter and Facebook posting updates about how many weeks/days/hours it is until Christmas. There has also been vast amounts of column space dedicated to analysis of the Christmas adverts from some of the main British retailers.

I have been doing the adult equivalent of sticking my fingers in my ears and singing ‘lalalala’. It’s only November. We’ve just moved house. I can’t think about Christmas yet.

But when my veg box arrived this morning, there was a wee surprise nestled in among the cavolo nero, sharon fruit, parsnips and tatties.

A mini mince pie. A yummy, pretty, bite-sized mince pie.

I guess I can’t avoid it any longer. Christmas is coming.

To help get in the festive spirit, check out the Christmassy posts from other bloggers over at Festive Friday on Thinly Spread.

  1. I’ve been focusing on Christmas for a few weeks now but I can’t/won’t eat my first mince pie until December….It would just feel wrong!

    I read on Facebook the other day that some of my friends are already starting to put up Christmas decorations. I could never put my decorations up before December, although I would never judge them for doing so.
    I get as excited, if not more so, than the kids when it comes to Christmas but I learnt a long time ago that the best things come to those who wait and I know that Christmas will be more special if I don’t try to hurry it along!

    I soooo want a mince pie right now!

    • Hope you found your mince pie! Definitely no decorations here yet – probably not until a week or two before Christmas. Thanks for taking the time to read and post 🙂 x

  2. Ooh, I lurvvve mince pies.In fact I had an iced mince pie after my tea tonight.Oh and one the other day as well. Yes, I know it’s November. No, I don’t care. 🙂

    • Ooh, now iced mince pies… you’re opening up a pretty controversial debate there, no?! Are mince pies supposed to be iced, really? I’m open to persuasion – if you tell me they’re awesome I might try one, but I haven’t been convinced yet 😉
