Subject:The Friday Five for December 21, 2018
Time:04:48 am
It’s nearly time for holly, old St. Nick, and all the other bits and bobs of the season. Pardon me if these are mostly aim at Christmas, but it’s sort of a big thing around here.

1. Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas – which one do you use?

2. Do you own an ugly Christmas sweater?

3. Do you celebrate the Winter Solstice?

4. Now that you are ‘in the know,’ what would you leave out for St. Nick on the 24th?

5. Tired of the snow and icky weather yet? For those fortunate folks in the other hemisphere, are you tired of the humidity and hot weather?

My answers:

1. Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas – which one do you use? "Happy Christmas". I dislike "Happy Holidays" as I wasn't brought up to say that and it's a fairly recent introduction over here. Having said that, most people I know who are not Christian also say Happy Christmas to me, so I think it's a general greeting at this time of year in the UK.
2. Do you own an ugly Christmas sweater? No. Mr Cee owns some spectacularly loud Christmas shirts and he loves things that play a tune, so he has a couple of ties and some socks that play Christmas music *g*
3. Do you celebrate the Winter Solstice? Only in that I am desperate for more light so I am incredibly thankful that finally the days will start to get longer and I will not get Seasonal Affective Disorder issues for much longer.
4. Now that you are ‘in the know,’ what would you leave out for St. Nick on the 24th? When the children were little we used to leave a carrot and a mince pie for Father Christmas. However, these days we don't leave anything.....
5. Tired of the snow and icky weather yet? For those fortunate folks in the other hemisphere, are you tired of the humidity and hot weather? Our weather hasn't been too bad. It's remarkably mild here in the South East suburbs of London. Today it was 13C/33F and quite sunny (although it was very windy today). We are apparently heading for a cold snap after Christmas, but no snow is forecast and the lowest it will be is 5C/41F.

Musical socks? I love it!

Like you, I look forward to the longer days again.

1. Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas – which one do you use? Merry Christmas, Happy New Year...

2. Do you own an ugly Christmas sweater? Sad to say, no.

3. Do you celebrate the Winter Solstice? No, nor the more season (to me) Summer one, but I like to read about oldfashioned traditions that others used to do it….

4. Now that you are ‘in the know,’ what would you leave out for St. Nick on the 24th? Umm…. Nothing?

5. Tired of the snow and icky weather yet? For those fortunate folks in the other hemisphere, are you tired of the humidity and hot weather? The dry heat takes it out of me, especially when trying to shop and prepare for Christmas.
