The Many Christmases (A Story)

No one has any money any more. And we all ran out of ideas for presents on day 12. Not that we have a lot of options here. The only place open in the village is Mr Sandhu’s little shop and space invaders and other confectionery don’t make for good presents. Heck on day nine mum got me a tin of beans – and they weren’t even Heinz! I know a present is a present but still. Damn You, Wizard.

We can’t even go for a walk any more because the snowman has brought so much snow! I can barely get the door open. I could technically get out of the house but I wouldn’t even be able to find it again.

Even Santa Clause has been reduced to just one Ho. Christmas Eve he was his usual self. “Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas.” Now it is just: “Ho. Christmas.”

He has lost so much weight too travelling around the world every day. And he is malnourished. He’s forced to subsist on mince pies, which at this point contain as much sawdust as they do flour, also sherry, and a small bite of a carrot. He and his reindeer are going to die if this goes on much longer.

Damn you, Wizard.

The kids singing goes on day and night and I don’t have any ear plugs. There was a massive clatter last night as the band collapsed from exhaustion – for the umpteenth time!

Oh I wish it could be Christmas once a year. So the kids stop singing and the band can get some sleep.

Let the bells stop ringing so I can hear myself think! I am going mad and about ready to beat myself over the head with a turkey leg! Last time I had the wish bone I wished for the sweet release of death!

Why don’t I give my love for Christmas? Because it won’t stop! I have rocked around the tree too many times – although tree is a bit generous since it is just a twig now – and if I hear the word merry once more I think I am going to scream.

I hope you all have a happy time no matter what you you are celebrating. And may the coming year be better than this one. Although it would take a lot for it to be worse wouldn’t it?

I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.

Less Than Two Weeks!

It’s time for the cliffhanger music to play. Next week will be my last post before Christmas. Unfortunately Christmas will be a little different this year. I have to work over Christmas week. I get Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off but, for all intents and purposes, it will be an ordinary week. Presents are bought, though not yet wrapped, so I guess I’m ready.

I mentioned last week about the grotto at work. There was something not quite right about it that I couldn’t quite put my finger on – now I know. Some of the songs are not the proper versions.

This is great:

The version at the grotto not so good. Insistently I don’t think the economical implications of this have been considered.

To be honest I’m becoming a bit of a Scrooge lately. I’ve passed from childhood excitement, to adult apathy, and landed on a slight dislike. Only a slight dislike mind you.

Christmas will be strange this year. Working Boxing Day is not fun.

The above shows it could be worse.

Every year we, as in society, talk about the new year being a signer of a change. “This time it was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything.” (Douglas Adams – The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.)

It would be nice to believe that 2015 will be the year of peace. It won’t be of course but its nice to dream.

I might at least be able to make it a great year for myself. At the very least I’d like to encourage a few more green pieces of paper my way.

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Best of the Season, Happy New Year, and any other celebration that may be coming up – and lets try to make 2015 a fantastic year.

Peace and long life.

Live long and prosper.
