Christmas Blog

Okay Folks, as my report for December won’t be posted until the 1st of January 2019 it seems appropriate to provide a special edition report for Christmas (2018).

I have always enjoyed Christmas and truly feel that it is a very special time of year. As a Christian I especially enjoy the Nativity and all that goes with it. However, even if we leave the religious aspect aside, I still feel it is a special time of year. To me it is a time to celebrate our families and friends, a time when perhaps we should forget old arguments and rebuild friendships. I think this is particularly relevant as a New Year is just around the corner, a chance, a possible opportunity to build a brighter future.

If you are on your own without friends or family don’t be afraid to go to church, you will always be made welcome. I am not ultra-religious and don’t go to church regularly, but sometimes you can feel a little closer to God in his house. If you feel really daring, say bollocks to everybody and take yourself off to Spain for a Christmas break, you will soon meet others in the same position as yourself.

With regard to my sparky chums, I do hope you have been good all year and that Santa leaves you a copy of that nice new blue book in your stocking.

My Christmas wish for everybody is that I hope you all have a healthy new year, we are not yet at the point of a cure-all for everything but we are getting tantalisingly close. we always hope for a prosperous new year as well and although that may sound like a bit of greed creeping in, it is a basic fact of life. We do need to pay bills. I could say that I wish for peace on earth (and that would be fantastic) but the truth is there will always be bad guys and unfortunately, the only thing they understand is a big stick, so we do occasionally have to go to war in order to protect our freedom or defend the weak.

I will leave you on a festive note – what is your favourite carol? I would go for “In the Bleak Mid-winter” in pole position, very closely followed by “Once in Royal David’s City”.

But whatever you do, enjoy yourself and don’t do anything you don’t want to. I sincerely hope all my readers and those who aren’t have a very merry Christmas and an extremely cool yule.

Christmas just finished about a week ago, the next exciting event is probably New Year's Eve. What I really love about the New Year is the amount of fun and noise that we do. Normally, people are not allowed to create a lot of noise, however, during New Year's Eve is an exemption. I really love how people are free to be noisy, rowdy and drunk during New Year's Eve. I remember so much fun memories during the New Year's Eve.

It's likewise amusing to get everybody together to brighten the tree. We did that this year (our first year as a couple) yet despite everything I have recollections of doing that as a youngster. My folks would put the lights and wreath up.
