How To Tell Whether It's Christmas: a Quiz (multiple choice)
You know it's Christmas when
a) the pianist in David Jones is playing carols instead of the Moonlight Sonata or I Could Have Danced All Night.
b) you're momentarily blinded at the wheel by the sun reflecting off the tinsel in the neighbours' rose bushes.
c) you can't even get into the corridor where the loo is at Myer, because it's full of what turns out to be a single extended family of young women and small, crying children clutching helium balloons who have all decided to go to the loo together.
d) you realise you've put your hand up for potato salad and trifle, which means you'll have to make both mayonnaise and custard, which means a trip to the Central Market in the middle of the Christmas crowds to get the good free-range Kangaroo Island eggs. Again.
e) you've got little paper cuts all over your tongue.
