Day 2.348: Happy Holidays!

It's a funny time of year for greetings - in a week's time we will be wishing people a Happy New Year, and then we can revert to the staple winter greeting in these parts 'Stay Warm!' - but for now it's a minefield. One of my colleagues grumbled (joking) that even 'Happy Holidays' is a religiously loaded phrase, so we settled on 'Merry Seasonings!' as the ultimate in generic greetings.

That said, this is our Christmas greeting (unless you are in Germany where it has been banned!*) - if you do not celebrate Christmas, I hope you will not be offended by the fact that we do and that we hope that you are well and happy at this particular time of year.

Whether or not you celebrate Christmas, either as a religious festival or as a mid-winter excuse for shopping, gift-giving, eating and drinking we would like to thank you for reading this blog for being our friends and family, casual acquaintances, friends of friends or adventurous web surfers. May your days be merry and bright and may all your holiday greetings be appropriate.

* True!


  1. happy saviour's birthing to you all too !

    i wasn't offended by your greetings, but i was by your abuse of your camera. did you get a new one for christmas and want to claim for the old one on your insurance :-)

    Hope you have/had a fantastic day.

  2. Thank you!

    The camera is alive and well and was not damaged during recording. Thanks for your concern. It was safe inside a snow-tight jar for the second-half of the film.

    It's mid-afternoon on Christmas Day here at the moment. We're having a very nice day thanks!
