It’s Christmas Eve and quite strangely I’m beginning to feel a little pumped up, tense with excitement and enthusiasm as if a rush of adrenalin has hit me full on. Oh no don’t say; the festive jolly’s have got a hold. I’ve held out for so long during the last two months and the run-up to this annual event that has a strange exaltation on the many, albeit, just for a few days. I’ve even found myself singing as I go about my business; these words keep floating around in my head: "the colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky are also on the faces of the people passing by. I see friends shaking hands, saying, "how do you do?" But they're really saying, "I love you."

I know it’s not a Christmas Carol, but it will do!

I feel sorry for Scrooge having been visited by the past, present and future on that festive eve, poor sod, it cost him an arm and a leg in the end, and I’m sleeping with the light on this evening.

Well I hope that my affliction passes soon and whatever you are doing, wherever you are in the world, I hope you all have a peaceful, wonderful holiday and I send socialist greetings to you and yours!

I found some lovely photographs thanks to the BBC and I offer them as my blog Christmas card, hope you enjoy!
