Mine is the Starbucks red cups which signify the return of their Gingerbread Latte. Saying that this year's first one was disappointing. No as creamy and delicious as I remember. But just seeing people wandering around with the red cups makes me feel all Christmassy.
The Christmas markets in Manchester will be up and running from next week. The cottages are up but no people selling their wares. There is a winter themed pop up bar right next to my work so might have to have a little sample of their Manchester Mulled Wine (spiked with Vimto).
