I could have said Holiday Post, and been PC, but for me, it is Christmastime. Which feels like a dodgy word, doesn’t it? I thought it was made up for the song “Feed the World”. Is it real and recognised by dictionaries? I should look that up. (It is in Merriam’s apparently!) I like Christmastide – much more olde worldly! Thither is another word I only ever hear at this time of year – Good King Wenceslas and all that. Hither and thither. Hither and yon. I grew up hearing those phrases occasionally. Not so much now. My gifts to you this year are reminders of those words and phrases, Ho Ho Ho!!
Whatever your nationality, ethnicity, beliefs: be well, and do no ill now or in this coming year.
Be excellent to one another.
