The electric cheer that possesses me during the Christmas period has the same urgency to it as a love affair. I do believe that Christmas is a time for going, well, insane! And England is the right place to indulge yourself in this love affair ‘insanity’. We start with the ‘war’ of cards. We send cards to everybody we know or not. The only prerequisite is to know name and address. Today I received the first card in the size of A4 from a couple who they say they are ‘friends’(johnny’s friends) I have never seen them! They refuse to meet up despite they live 30 km away, but they never forget to send their card with their credentials (their posh address and posh names of their offsprings like they are descendants of the Tsar). Anyway, after we have to post the cards. So we go altogether happy clappy in the post office and we are standing in a long queue chatting about the quirks of the weather. And this is only the start of the Christmas extravaganza ..... (to be continued)
p.s I am taking part in this love affair!
