I like Christmas. It´s a good time to remember friends and family and a good way to end yet another year. I don´t go for a Christmas tree (although I do like them), but I certainly enjoy to bring old Santa out to greet all visitors with his friendly look. December is dark and cold in Sweden, with just a few hours of daylight per day. Christmas is not very religious here, more a celebration of sorts. Let´s give the kids a good time, have a nice meal (or two) and see the year out with joy.
It can certainly be expensive, so I usually start proceedings quite early. I bought the first presents weeks ago in order not to find myself in a panic the last few days before Christmas. Hey, I treated myself with High Chaparral (first two boxes just released here) as well. That will bring my personal festivities to a nice place when it´s time to relax. I love that show.
Bring it on. I´m ready.
Oh, and I will add an interesting interview to this blog on December 24, with Johnnie Bolin (brother of Tommy Bolin, one time guitarist of Deep Purple).
