With our third Christmas and our fourth year here fast approaching, I thought I should write something festive, but I just can’t get into the mood. For me, Christmas is snow and ice, warm bars, works parties, holidays and family arguments around a half-cooked turkey etc. Eighty degree heat and tropical rain just doesn’t cut the mustard I’m afraid. Anyway, let me try.
First of all, to those among you who think Christmas is a happy, magical time, may I wish you the happiest, most magical Christmas ever. To those who assign a spiritual meaning to the period, may this Christmas warm your soul and refresh your spirit to the utmost. And to those who find Christmas an over-rated, commercially-driven drudge, may you at least get some decent presents and have a good piss-up.
That’s probably it for this year from me, as I have so little time available now for the personal blog – but I will be back in 2011 and I hope to have lots to blog about. In the meantime, have a good one, and may your god go with you.
