Merry Xmas - In A Rational, Secular Kind Of Sense
December 25th has always been a pagan celebration - the Winter Solstice - in the United Kingdom. It got sort of hi-jacked, first by the Christians, and then by Coca-Cola, and these days by Russell T Davies, it would seem.
But it's a fun day and a great excuse to see family and friends you haven't seen for a while. Right now I'm visiting my sister and nephew - who is very much looking forward to his Xmas Who - and I'm staying in a hotel where:
a. I'm the only guest, and
b. They run an honour bar (you serve yourself and they trust you to add it to your own bill)
If you're that way inclined, then I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
