This morning, I called at my local small town and spent eleventy nine hours trying to park ! very unusual, but the reason being that the theatre there had started it's Panto season, and loads of coaches were bringing small children for their school trip to see the Panto.
The atmosphere was electric, the children so excited ! I waited for 9 - yes 9 ! coaches to unload (with still more waiting to get into the car park) then decided to 'try' to get out. (not an easy thing to do)
I never went to a Panto as a child, but I think it is a 'must' to be included in the Christmas Traditional 'things to do'
For those 'overseas' readers, a British 'Pantomime' is definately a one off - something you love or hate, something that can't be described, but seems to be increasingly popular, even in these days of i-pods, blackberry's, kindles, etc.etc.,
long live childhood !! long live Great Britain !!
take care peeps ...............
