The 24 Days of Christmas – Day 9

As we all know, Christmas is fast approaching and as we all also know, many of you will be struggling to think of interesting gift ideas for your nearest and dearest. ‘What shall we buy to show our love?!’ we hear you cry. Well, fear not, for we at the Fold know that sometimes, thinking beyond the usual DVD boxsets/smellies/Xbox games can be a little difficult, and so over the course of December we endeavour to bring you a new gift idea each day on the run-up to Christmas, totalling 24, and with each one we shall also bring you an accompanying song that somehow represents the gift in some way. ‘Gift ideas and related entertainment?!’ we hear you now crying! ‘How on Earth do they manage it?!’


Day #9: Pin Art Thingy

When I was younger, I was fascinated by my older cousin’s pin art box. For some reason, it was cool, in an unattractive, weird kind of way. Like smoking, or fancying Simon Cowell. Repeatedly imprinting your face in a box of needles held somekind of special power over me. Had I had one of these, I doubt I’d be the kind of go-getting self-facilitating media node I am today.

Just don’t share one. Those pins are prone to sinking into a snotty nostril or two. Instead, why not buy it for a loved one, cue up the tune below and insist they leave some seriously brilliant facial impressions whilst attempting to mime along.
