is it one of the hottest days of summer?
is it time for our annual
christmas in july/august celebration?
with long-time friends
odds and ends re-gifts to each other
that we’re highly likely
to re-gift to someone else at a later date
no reason to keep the joy of giving all to ourselves.
‘christmas makes me happy no matter what time of year it comes around.”

all human wisdom is summed up in two words; wait and hope.
a merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance.

now you might reasonably say to me: “why put yourself through all this? why go up to the loft when you know the decorations won’t be there? why untangle the lights when you know they haven’t a chance of working?” and my answer to you is that this is part of the ritual. christmas wouldn’t be christmas without it.’ bill bryson – ‘notes from a big country’
