    We made a pact with our familys donkeys years ago that we would not exchange presents at Christmas and it has worked well over the years and we can usually be found on a hill somewhere on Christmas day with a Flask of tea and a cheese sandwich, or in the campervan in the middle of a field surrounded by like minded folk (Glenmore Campsite is one of our Favorites for Christmas and New Year).

    TBH we have always found that spontaineous gifting and family get togethers are a lot more meaningfull and much more appreciated than sticking to calender dates.

    Friends and work colleagues know me well enough not to give me or receive gifts from me and TBH most of them are releived that is the case, a quick handshake and good wishes means a lot more than some tacky gift that is not wanted or needed.

    Brilliant Christmas as my 2 lads are coming with us because others couldn't accommodate.
    Beautiful and better food.

    Must be the effect of climate change messing up the seasons, but my wife has been doing a Spring clean of the house for a few days around the Winter solstice (obviously I have been pressed into action to help with this). Or it may have something to do with the fact that (unusually) we are hosting the family (9 people) for Christmas dinner.

    The mysterious guys from Springfield Striders who recognised me as a forumite at Cardington Cracker, even though I didn’t know you!

    Apologies anybody I’ve forgotten, it’s certainly not deliberate!

    No selective list from me just a simple message to all:-

    “And so, I’m offering this simple phrase to kids from one to 92. Although it’s been said many times, many ways, Merry Christmas to you.”

    Thanks Nat
