Christmas Creches

Back in December 2007 I wrote an entry on this blog about a Christmas crèche in Austria. It seems that the idea has caught on and this year we have seen a similar project launched in Carmarthen, with one to follow at the weekend in Manchester

Comfortable settees, magazines, sport on large TV screens and electronic games, it sounds like boys’ heaven; a haven where men retreat to whilst their other halves get stuck into some serious Christmas shopping. 

To work like a crèche the men must presumably be deposited and collected by their wives or long term partners. In 2007 I pondered on the outcome if their spouse failed to collect them; in 2015 I wonder what will happen if the men quite simply don’t want to leave!

This is a great idea, speaking as someone who often traisl around shopping centres unwillingly with my wife.
I'm suprised more of the big centres haven't cottoned on to this and set up somewhere for men to hang out.

This is a fantastic idea! I live in the United States and even though my husband enjoys shopping I have more endurance than he does...LOL next would be child care!!!
