That's a relief, I feared we might have missed that mainstay of Tabloid Crimbo Culture

If I read "leaving children in tears" just one more time, I'll be in tears myself. Tears of absolute rage and exasperation that so-called journalists can't produce a newer, better, more original expression to describe the often-justified ( but not always ) disappointment of families looking forward to a good day out. Their laziness makes me sick.

I never thought I'd write "so-called" as it's too Littlejohn-ish. But I couldn't think of anything else.

It's utterly meaningless, too. Under a certain age, there's little or nothing that won't leave a child in tears.

Me and the wee lassie went to a local one with her playgroup a few days back. It was a bit shite, but the little ones were all enchanted. Right up until mine piped up that Rudolph clearly wasn't real, as she could see "people eyes" behind the mask.

He's not real!' Horrified youngsters are traumatised [Tick] by FAKE Father Christmas at 'shambolic' Winter Wonderland where the ice rink stank of chlorine and 'Santa' had to pull his ill-fitting beard down to speak

Some children were left in tears [Tick] after a Christmas event in Northern Ireland, where the ice rink stank of chlorine and Santa had to pull down his ill-fitting beard down to speak.

Furious vicar blasts Domino's for asking him to hang 'blasphemous' poster advertising pre-Christmas 'Saviour Deal' from his church
But what if they asked if they could hang one outside a mosque eh?

Another Winterval myth in the making as thousands of Expressites don't read as far as India and Uttar Pradesh, and mentally substitute Moslems for Hindus.
