    Seems a bit out of place having Christmas decorations and carols when the sun is shining bright. Christmas is a world wide celebration except for those religions that do not believe in it.

    Best thing I did over Xmas was temporary leave Facebook. SO all the Merry Xmas etc just passed on by. I don't HATE Christmas. I just think its a time to self reflect and do what you damn well want. I avoided shops, didn't EXPECT much for Christmas, and I've GOT to do dialysis around it anyway without question. We had a few family members round on boxing day for a meal and that was it.

    Additional rant - Why do people who I'm barely on nodding terms with expect me to shake their hands today?

    Next year I think I'll revive a Scottish tradition and give them each a lump of coal and a "lang may yer lum reek"; that should confuse most of them.

    I think the shaking hands thing is them wanting to pass on some deadly disease to you... bah humbug!

    I wholeheartedly support your confusing people with coal though, it's always fun, just remember that many of the youngsters won't have even seen coal so maybe they'll think it's an expensive gift.

    Well it is made into jewelry, especially Jet and Anthracite but softer coals can be used as well.
