The UK 2023 'Days Of Christmas'

 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Keeping this blog's tradition going, this is my Yuletide posting about all that you should know for Christmas. But let's just take a moment in the busy day to remember what it's all about - the people you love. I'm thinking of the people you love right now ... are you thinking of mine?

Of course, it's not just about family and friends (if that's who I was thinking of) but also presents, alcohol and oodles of sitting around in front of the TV (or under the the sun you lucky Southern Hempishpereans!).

If Jesus is your thing, I mean, if he's your bag, what you're into man then do the religious thing as well. Just don't get all "God" over Christmas and try to remember that it was originally a pagan festival around the longest day, certainly don't want you Christians foisting your ideas on people and trying to subvert the real message!

Fun. that's the real message. Believe in Father Christmas (who shats all over Santa) and have too much laughter with the people you love, but remember it can all be a bit much sometimes, How to party if you’re shy, socially awkward – or just plain boring.
