So this is Christmas?

Christmas has been changing a lot for me over the years but somehow the season still imbues me with a strong sense of tradition.

Christmas is almost universal, at least it is within the Caribbean. What I like about this holiday is that no matter where you go at this time of year, you’ll find a Christmas tree or plastic Santa Clause or two to reassure you that the rest of the world is just as keen as spending money they don’t have as you are.

Or, less cynically, that everyone celebrates the same things you do. It’s a lot easier to spend Christmas away from home when all the same traditions apply here as well: all day cooking, baking fruit cake, Christmas sprucing-up, sit-down dinners.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. . .

. . .so enjoy the cast of Doctor Who singing a Christmas carol.

I effing love these guys.

    You should go someplace where the Christmas traditions are completely different! Or, better yet, a place (like Israel) in which Christmas-celebrators are a minority. That would be an interesting experience.
