I can’t say I’ve ever been fond of the winter, but SAD has really kicked in big time this year.
How on earth folk living in countries further north than the UK cope with the even longer nights, some without any daylight at all I just cannot comprehend.
I’m a summer person, I love the long daylight hours and the warmth it brings. Perhaps I need to hibernate till then 😉
Or at least hibernate through the rest of December.
Yesterday 21st December was the shortest day, only three days now till the fat man dressed in red answers the demands of all the spoilt ‘I want, I want’ kids of the world.
Where has the fun of Christmas gone?
The season of goodwill? what a joke!
Nowadays it’s just parents going into debt trying to outdo each other for their little brats, and a mad panic of crowds grabbing enough food off the shelves that would last them for weeks (not just the one day the supermarket is closed).
My younger daughter popped down to the local supermarket today to get something for her dinner, she was refused admission well before the 4pm closing, because the shop was so full it would have been impossible to get everyone through the tills by 4pm…..WTF!
So here, for anyone else in Bah Humbug mode is a little bit of summer.
