Grey is the new red
As I wandered around town the other day, I suddenly noticed that the Father Christmases (or should that be Fathers Christmas?) were dressed in grey. When did this new fashion start? Have I been missing something.
I also see they are all wearing spectacles. The first one I noticed was the one in the optician's window and I thought they were being clever. Then the wine seller had his Father Christmas surrounded by bottles, fair enough, but I started to worry when I got to the pharmacy. However the worry was unecessary and he was clutching his skis.
I don't know where this fashion for grey came from. Whatever next? Grey berries on the holly?
