Sorry. See what? Well Christmas of course. OK! so what should I have been looking for? Oh dear, try and think back. Back to Christmases of a few years ago... Oh yes now I get it. Yes. Christmas's past. Yes folk were at least trying to be happy, kids would be out in the street Christmas morning trying out their new bikes or skates. If you called at a friends house. the front door would open and allow fragrances of real home cooking to flood out. Folk themselves would be walking around smiling, there would be laughter banter, you name it. I can recall as a kid of the war years, folk really made the most of this festive season. Times were hard, money ...what's that. There was also, whetherornot you had a Christian belief. There was an abundance of that. This year. OK as I have done since losing my mate, my wife. I spent xmas day on my tod. To me it was no different to the day before or even a month before.
What has happened. OK perhaps you are not of the religios class. Never mind. It's the festive season. So where are the household party's the old joanna (piano) playing out, singing and dancing, acting the fool. TV News informs us that shops are starting their sales eary. High St sales are down. Never mind. Yes this family are skint but, hey, I've got a credit card. Yippeee. Thankfully I don't celebrate the festive season. Thankfully. I owe no shop or anybody a penny. So who is the one celebrating now?
