Sometimes a list is the best way to deal with this busy time of year, primarily called Christmas, although it can take on other names such as ‘Noel’ and ‘The Holiday Season.'(yuk)
It’s never too soon to think it all through, write it all down, and then tick it all off, bit by bit!
Expect some surprises, and last minute things too.
Selecting and highlighting TV programmes comes soon.
Shopping and preparing the meal is last of all, if it’s you…Good luck.
If you’re the guest…remember your oohs, ahhs, pleases and thank yous, always take a gift and say ‘yes‘ to everything (including charades, scrabble, a recital of some sort, jokes and clearing up) – it is Christmas! (apparently).
Make everyday a ‘good-morrow’…
‘… all pleasures fancies be.
If ever any beauty I did see,
Which I desired, and got, ’twas but a dream of thee.’
from ‘The Good-morrow’ by John Donne (1572-1631)
