Tidings of joy

It's Christmas soon- That strange mix of pagan tradition and Christianity.

I'm often accused of having a Scrooge-like 'Bah, Humbug' outlook on the whole thing.

That's not entirely fair. I respect those who have a strong religious conviction and see it as a celebration of the birth of their saviour. I'm also keen on the mediaeval feast day aspect- family and friends snug indoors out of the cold, full of food and drink.


But I don't think I'm alone in disliking the constant 'BUY BUY BUY- SHINY THINGS-WOW!' message we're hit over the head with from mid October.

Anyway, here's a Christmas cartoon that I couldn’t sell.

    The thing I hate is the pressure to find good presents, yet anything the shops put in that category is by definition rubbishy tat.

  2. We should all make presents, in the best Blue Peter tradition
