It’s a Christmas thing….

I was going to write about the madness that Christmas has become but I think that has been done to death.   Instead I am going to spend a few moments thinking about my favourite jumper.   A piece of clothing that  I am sure my wife would happily get rid of as it is starting to look a little wear worn but that way leads to divorce.   Years ago I had another jumper that was well past its sell by date but was always the jumper of choice as the cold weather approached.  Eventually it fell to pieces or perhaps I outgrew it!   Anyway it went and for years I didn’t have anything to replace it – now I do and I am as happy as anyone can be about a ten year old piece of clothing.

What can I say?  I’m a man and should any woman read this they are more than likely going to have that  look on their face whereby they wonder at the sanity of almost 50% of the population.   Any man who has been in a long term relationship with a woman will know that look and if we are honest to ourselves we know we are crazy but there we are – we all have our jumper et al and no amount of of looks will change our mind.

So may I wish anyone who reads this a happy Christmas and I hope you are happy with what you get on this feast day.   Anyone who has to work on Christmas I know how hard that can be – been there – done that – got the T shirt so whenever you enjoy the feast day I hope it is a good one.

One final thought.   Christmas is supposed to be about celebrating the birth of the saviour of men and women.  Whether you believe this or not I just hope that you try and show some good will to other people – goodness only knows we need that at the moment.
