Am I the only one or are there others who seems to have lost their Christmas spirit?
When I was a kiddie back in the 60's, Christmas was the highlight of the year; films on telly, presents,snow (nearly every year back then) and loads of food and sweets. Now, well, it's just a lot of hard work for one day.
I know Santa personally (I met hin in Queens Street, Cardiff selling the Big Issue [must be a second job] ) and even he said Christmas has lost it's sparkle. If Santa doesn't think Christmas is special, then I think we are in for a pretty boring yuletide.
TV repeats will be repeated ...again! Noel bleedin' Edmonds will be dragged out again doing 'nice' things. Oh, and there'll be at least on program that plays Slade's Merry Christmas again and again and again!
But where are the the old Christmas values? Nowerdays it's all about someone making money and the BBC and ITV saving it by showing you old programmes and saying 'you are in for a treat cos we are showing you some old favourites'.
Now I know I still have some Christmas spirit left ... but I'll be damned if I know where Julie hid the bottle.
Once more, dear reader (who ever you are), Humbug with bells on!!!
