Re-living my best self

I was asked to MC the local Christmas Carnival the other day.

I. Loved. It.

I have a radio background and am very comfortable with a microphone and going up to talk to people I don’t know. I think they got more than they bargained for – instead of just introducing the different entertainment acts and reading the notices about what was on where and when, I wandered around the stage talking to the crowd as well. My favourite questions were, ‘what is your go-to food on Christmas Day?’ and ‘what’s your favourite Christmas tradition?’.

The responses were lovely. From Grandma’s stuffing or roast lamb or pavlova through to ‘just’ spending time with extended family. Not one single person mentioned presents.

I’ve already told them I’ll be back to MC next year (they don’t have a choice!)
