24th December
written by Dame Suzy

If you google “Jesus’ birthdate,” you will find dates of March to September. We happen to celebrate it during winter, perhaps to counteract the winter blahs in the more important half of the hemisphere.

What this means is that I personally dread holiday travel, because it has been known to snow in many parts of the world, and I have no desire to get stuck in some airport like many Europeans this season, just so I can pig out on a meat I’m not crazy about and blab with a family I’m also not thrilled about.

So it’s time to either start a trend of virtual Christmases – where we can wish each other well and pig out via Live Messenger or Skype, and avoid the snarl of the opposite of a warm, cuddly Christmas.
