Christmas Meme

It occurred to me that perhaps part of the purpose of these Holidailies posts was to have some festive subjects. Maybe a Christmas meme even and as I haven't yet seen any on my regular reads I did a websearch and found a few. But urgh! I have been overtaken with Scrooge and find myself not being able to get up enough of the festive spirit. Sometimes I like egg nog and sometimes it is hot chocolate. Whether I choose wrapping paper or a festive bag for wrapping presents is a rather moot point because up until this year, under the tutelage of beloved Mr Doris, we have specialised in kitchen foil as wrap!

As to which is my favourite Christmas carol - I don't know. There are a lot of them. Favourite childhood Christmas memories is stepping on sore ground and so forth. Which is my favourite Christmas gift, or worst, favourite Christmas desert and what goes on top of the tree are all moveable feasts. Ask me tomorrow and I might be very enthusiastic. Or not.

Bah Humbug!

'In the Bleak Midwinter' has to be high up on the list ;-)

And foil can look nice! ;-) Kinda shiny!

We have one of those (genuine) 'Avoiding stress during the holiday season' things on our intranet at the moment. It has places to reference and even counsellor support.

So I know there must be a lot of folk out there who find the festive season a source of challenge.

Jo I never did get Bleak Midwinter because I only hear the word bleak .... and not about anything *nice*! Anyway, young Jesus wouldn't have been born in weather that could be called *bleak* .... and frankly, I should look up the words to see what is being said.

LOL about foil :-)

Rashbre Indeed. I shall quote the oft quoted comment that most suicides are supposed to happen at Christmas .... don't know what the truth of that is but am not surprised.
