Some of you may have already have worked this out, but I think I've been a bit slow on the uptake and only just got it.
Christmas is not for the kids, not for Jesus and not just for a dog (reverse that). Christmas is for getting you through the grimmest part of a Northern European winter. It may be for something else in other parts of the world, but I think right here it's a series of treats to make midwinter bearable.
I want proper daylight and I want it now.
