OK, I have to admit to being a bit of a scrooge bah, humbug sort of Christmas guy.
BUT over the years, Sue has started to wear me down. My resistance to turning my back on all this Christmas cheer is slowly fading where I am starting to enjoy the festivities. I think this all resulted from an early childhood experience when I chopped down a very large branch from a council grounds conifer. I dragged it home across a busy highway and was promptly scolded for such an act of vandalism. I just thought it would be nice to have a real Christmas tree at home - that was 56 years ago.
Sue couldn't understand my minimalistic attitude towards the festive season, but there it is, a hidden childhood drama released in adulthood.
I'm mellowing and now after releasing this inner most dark experience here in our blog, I feel I can enjoy Christmas without that bah, humbug attitude that I've harboured for so many years.
What are you doing at Christmas?
