I find Christmas difficult. So you can imagine how thrilled I am that, somewhere along the way, the whole of Great Britain seems to have agreed to extend it from 12 days into an entire month. December 1st hit and suddenly there it was. Christmas! Everyone seems to have their tree up, the Christmas lights are on everywhere, the daft songs are back on the radio, and we’re all supposed to pretend to like fruit cake and mince pies.
I plan to just take it one day at a time and remember that it will soon be January. And surely we can all agree that Christmas doesn’t extend into January?
