Merry Christmas

I’m often accused of being a bit of a grinch at this time of year as I don’t really embrace the Christmas season like some people do. Since I spend Christmas with my folks I don’t tend to have a tree, or put up any decorations in my flat. I fact I don’t really do anything special in the run up to Christmas.

I still feel the season is important, but it’s not about the decorations, the trimmings or even ‘the spice’ as the fat tongued mockney twat says in the adverts.

It’s about the people. It’s about family, friends and strangers.*

So I hope each and everyone of you has the best Christmas you can, however you want it to be.

As a gift to me, just take a second away from the turkey, the tinsel and the tree and think of everyone else’s Christmas and what you can do to help them have the best time they can — not just a Christmas but all year round.

Merry Christmas.

I’m not Christian so it’s not about Jesus for me, but if it is for you then that’s cool too.
