Personally ?

- relatives I don't particulary get on with, or want to see.

In particular, i've managed to not see my mother for a whole 12 months
(sadly not my record !) :-p

Seasons greetings to all, whatever it means to you.
Happy Christmas.
:)
"Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes
for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress,
non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice
holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious
persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with
respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of
others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions
at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and
medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally
accepted calendar year 2008, but not without due respect for the
calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society
have helped make this planet great and without regard to the race,
creed, colour, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual
preference of the wishee. By accepting these greetings you are accepting
these terms. This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal.
It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting.
It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the
wishes for himself or others, and is void where prohibited by law and is
revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted
to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for
a period of one year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday
greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement
of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the
wisher."

Bah... whoever originally wrote that nonsence needs shooting

Merry Christmas to all!!

I've been drinking port all week in an attempt to clear the backlog a
bit. Three or four years' worth of other peoples' corporate presents
passed on to us.
Pissing with rain and the cat's just been sick under the Xmas tree...

They're good at that, aren't they? Presumably it's right at the back
where it's difficult to reach. Then there's the collection of
decorations removed from the tree and batted around the floor.

Ours is a bit old to be disruptive, but he knows his routine is under
threat and has decided to sit in a corner and face the wall. I might
join him, and finish off the port

It means being given a santa hat to wear at work, and a fridge stocked
full of Tesco's half-prix quick-sale reductions.

And some truly, truly hideous tat being sold off cheap on QVC.
