The idea of a Christmas made up of beautiful homemade gifts, cards, decorations, and food is so enticing. Social networks are covered in ideas shared and tried. It is the season for giving, and the thought that counts seems to count more when the gifts are handmade. Banquets big and small ought to be labours […]
Popular media would have you believe that Jewish folk have cornered the market on ignoring the religious holidays towards the end of the year. However, my family and many other families took the Christ out of Christmas a long time ago (sorry right-wing pundits!) and celebrate mostly the cultural gift-exchanging and excessive eating.
It’s Christmas today! Well, at least in Germany it is.
Break out the ‘nog.
It may not be random, but it’s relevant.

As of this moment, there are six sleeps to go. That is, until Hogswatch is upon us. Stockings full of little gifts. No lumps of coal this year. Hogswatch pyjamas and Hogfather hats. Desperation to keep stress under control.
For this Friday leading into the Christmas holiday, we’ve got a mixed bag of news, but I’ll cap it all off with an amusing photo because that’s just the kind of news-giver I am.
