    Default As usual....

    ... I'm the only one rattling around the forum at Christmas, which is like any other time of the year here, so, to prevent this forum from being slated as totally devoid of Christmas spirit, it falls to me to wish all members, old and new (and those in between ) a very happy festive season.

    I hope Santa hasn't been hit by the credit crunch and that he's going to come up with the goodies for you tonight . And this is what it's all about.

    Have a good one.

    I think there's a little more to the origins of some of the traditions mentioned in the Herald article, but 'twas good reading. This weekend I picked up a book called 4000 Years of Christmas. I'm looking forward to reading it.
