Having thought it through, for the first time in a few years I decided not to work Christmas this year and instead have booked a hotel in Glasgow. Not sure if I’ll bother with a Christmas tree therefore. 

I dread the Christmas/New Year period; the weather is generally horrible, I have no desire to go visit people as it’s damn awkward for everyone involved, the same 20 songs are repeated infinitely, and everyone expects you to be delighted to receive crap you don’t want, need or ask for. It’s not the case that everyone loves this time of year and it shouldn’t be met with “oh you’re just a misery”. So I will hole up in a hotel and get thru somehow.

  

At the very least you’ll probably get a bang up meal in the hotel! 

 

The thing I like about Christmas is I have no work and can lie guilt free in front of the telly (I lie down on the floor, will it cause me back problems in like 20 years time, let’s see!) watching absolute shite films. True bliss in my world.

Lying on the floor I’ve heard is better for your back than sitting in a couch or a chair. 

Either way I took last week off traveling back home for Thanksgiving, and now all my students have decorations in their houses and today it snowed in Seattle.

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

I will be spending Christmas Day with my parents and my brother at home this year. We will also be visiting my maternal grandparents and my sister. On Boxing Day, we will be going to Stratford-Upon-Avon to visit my paternal grandparents, aunties, uncles and cousins. I’m looking forward to it this year. 

 

I hope everyone on here has a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I am working Christmas, don’t have a tree or any decorations up and I’m not that bothered about any of it. Quite happy to get thru to the 3rd January when most people realise the festive period is falsified nonsense, the new year is just as crap as the old one and everyone wallows in misery for a month.

I’ve ordered a completely real 7ft Christmas tree which arrives on Tuesday. I love a proper tree, refuse to have the artificial ones.

Why don’t Apple release the 1995 mix of ‘Christmas Time (Is Here Again)’ to the streaming sites? Would be very popular despite the slight lyrics as most Christmas tracks aren’t that concerned by lyrics and it’s the Beatles. Would cost Apple nothing.
