As far as christmas goes, I don't do it, it's Solstice for me.
I hope you & the girls have a great time, and you all get the presents you want
I've just returned home, after cooking a feast for some friends, of which I partook, and am slightly drunk and it's taking me some time to find the right keys. I think I'm going to bed. Merry Christmas
