We're not all being a bit weird, I promise. Every year we flock to the windows of Fenwicks to see the unveiling of the new Christmas window.
Each Christmas the windows have a different theme and you always know the festive season has officially started when the new display is finally revealed.
This is the third year I've got to enjoy the Christmas window and as an honorary Geordie it's become a big part of my Christmas preparation.
This years display is Alice in Wonderland and whilst I've heard some grumble that it's not Christmassy enough I love it.
Fairytales are magical and Christmas is all about magic so the window is a great addition to Fenwicks' window displays.
The windows tell the whole of Alice's story with lots of clever little touches to bring the story alive.
And of course being a cake fiend myself I love the Mad Hatter's Tea Party window. Despite being 33 I couldn't resist being a big kid and having my photo taken in front of the display.
