So it’s Christmas again? And yes, dear reader, I do say “Christmas” and not “Yule”, “Winterval” or some other archaic or bastard term, for Christmas is what we have called it for so long that everyone knows it as such.
More important than what you call it is what you do with it. If you want to go to church and sing about Baby Jesus, and that gives you pleasure, so well and good. The rest of us can spend it as we wish. There is no reason to get het up or to get annoyed at those bores who preach to us about the “real meaning of Christmas”, meaning, of course, their personal meaning of Christmas.
I know what I am doing for Christmas. Apart from recovering from a cold, that is. I am relaxing in Tigger’s good and loving company, I am sharing delicious foods that Tigger has bought for the occasion and maybe going out later, if the rain stops, to take a look at a world in which all are enjoying themselves in their fashion. I hope you too are enjoying the day as you wish.
