June 30th and not only are we half-way through the week, we’re half-way through the year – less than six months to Christmas! Today’s the day for daring (or daft) deeds, as in 1859 the great tightrope walker Blondin performed a walk above the Niagara Falls, on his high-wire. Not content with just one journey, he then returned to the middle of the wire and set up a camera and tripod (not quite sure how sure that worked) so as to take pictures of the assembled crowds, amongst which there were several reported faintings. Slightly less stunning was the achievement of Spike Milligan who on this day in 1956 eventually got into the music charts with his single ‘I’m Walking Backwards For Christmas’ – obviously took a little longer to do it than he’d thought!.
So why not have a Christmas themed party today? We have a huge selection of Christmas costumes & accessories for all the family. Just think of all the fun you can have!
