I haz a Christmas Tree

100_0964

For several years now I haven’t bothered with this Christmas lark at all. I don’t believe in it, I absolutely abhor the over-consumption and commercialism and I don’t have time for all the Santa crap either. If one must follow this tradition, then I much prefer the Spanish version, where – in keeping with the original story, at leastthe Three Kings bring the gifts and where there are fun public events one can attend.

After all, what does Christmas mean now in the UK, apart from shopping and eating?

This year I decided I’d have some subtle decorations and try to muster up some festive feeling. So far, it’s failing miserably and the only thing I can think of again is how much I miss the joys Christmas season I’d become familiar with in Tenerife.
