Bah Humbug. Already.

The neighbouring house is lit up like a Christmas tree. I noticed it because that means my bathroom is lit up like a Christmas tree too. Well, it is Christmas, I suppose.

No, wait a minute. Or a month. It’s November. I guess these are the sorts of people who hide Easter eggs around the house in February.

Have you read “A Christmas Carol”? No, neither have I. I have, however, seen “The Muppet Christmas Carol”, which I’m sure remains faithful to the original. Though perhaps featuring more urchins and fewer frogs.

Dickens would have been proud.

I’m also visited by ghosts every Christmas. The ghosts of bank accounts past, present and future. I’ve even given them names. “Marginal”, “Shocking” and “Bankrupt”.

Never fear. I’m sure in three weeks I shall be “in the Christmas spirit” :-).
