Why is it,,,that everyone wants to see you ‘before Christmas’? We need to get together ‘before Christmas’ – this pressure that we need to see our nearest and dearest before the end of the year is so very silly really. I mean, what difference does it make if we see friends and family on the 23rd December or the 23rd January – it’s still lovely to see them all year round isn’t it? I’ve had three text messages over the course of the weekend asking just that – let’s get together ‘before Christmas’ – so the next two weeks are nuts for me and, maybe I’m being a bit of a bah humbug, but I’ve also put some people off until the new year – for something to look forward too. I mean – at this rate, I’ve be a rolling out of bed Christmas Day due to all the excess food I’ve consumed!!! But- for all my whinging, I do enjoy it – I just wish I had more hours in the day !!
The moral of this story – The festive season is a joyful affair and it’s about spending time with our nearest and dearest during this time of the year. However, let’s make an effort all year around – how many of us have those conversations when we meet people we’ve not seen for a while who’s first line is ‘Wow. I’ve not seen you since Christmas!’. My new year resolution is to see people more often – to make an effort – not just once a year. #JumpingThroughHoops, #RollingOutOBed, #ILoveItReally
