Christmas was cancelled. Despite the tree (brought home in the back seat of the Trabi), a Christmas brack, presents, a bottle of brandy and two bottles of rum, it didn’t happen this year.
We’ll go home next year. It’ll be Christmas then.
UPDATE: Wednesday, December 31, 2014 – Turns out it was only postponed. Santa never came back to take back his presents so they were opened today.
“Santa’s a good man,” the young man affirmed. He was happy with his haul – a fire truck, Aer Lingus playset, dinosaur book, a couple of jigsaws and the world.
He wanted a map of the world; now he has a football-map he can kick around
Well, there’s no time for dallying. The next big event is the horizon. We have our stash of sparklers and fireworks to shoot at unsuspecting passers-by from the balcony.
