But it's still ages away I hear you cry. Well that may be the case (although 45 days isn't a huge amount) but after attending the switching on of the lights in Covent Garden and the Disney store VIP Christmas party, I hope you will understand why for me, Christmas is very much here.
The London Gay Men's Choir filled the air with festive carols and as the sung Mariah Carey's classic All I Want For Christmas, Covent Garden was lit up by more than 150,000 twinkling fairy lights which sparkled as the crowd cheered and sung along.
As if it couldn't any more delightfully festive than that, we young ladies about town then attended the Disney store VIP Christmas party. With a gospel choir singing carols, mini Christmas pudding, snow cones (for the kids...and adults), cookie decorating and whole shop full of toys it's no wonder that the adults were just as excited as the children that were there.
On top of that we also got to chance to meet both Mickey and Minnie mouse, thankfully the queue to meet them consisted of four children and many more adults- it would appear I am not the only one the indulges in reverting to a state of childish excitement.
With 45 days to go until the big day and lights brightening city centres all over the UK I think it's fair to say it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
