Horsham council has hired snow machines to whiten the place up on Saturdays in December. (With apologies to Irving Berlin.)
The FTSE’s falling, your house won’t sell,
The economy’s in a bad way.
There’s never been such a day
In Horsham, I hear folk say,
For it’s November 2008.
Things can only get better – just wait. . .
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know,
But with global warming
No ice is forming,
But look! There’s artificial snow!
They’re dreaming up a white Christmas,
Biodegradable and bright.
So don’t worry, things will come right:
Saturdays this Christmas will be white!
