Yay, it's Christmas. Hark the herald angels stuff their faces with all kinds of heinously fattening snacks before ramming inappropriate amounts of roast dinner down their maws. Tis' the season to be jolly, even if in practice it turns out to be about the least jolly of all the seasons. Have an aspirational Christmas, chums. While shepherds washed their socks by night, and all that.
In all seriousness, I do hope you have some wonderful time over this festive holiday to reflect on what may/may not have been a great 2011. I am, beneath it all, quite the optimist - whatever the last year may have held, the New Year has all the promise that a fresh beginning brings with it. Enjoy your Christmas, and have a wonderful and prosperous 2012.
