Well apparently this is the latest Christmas trend:
I feel neither impressed nor inspired.
There are those who claim that this is some medieval custom, the shape representing the Trinity or the crucified Christ. There are those who claim that the medieval symbolism was that the tree ('right' way up) points to heaven. There are those who claim that its all Prince Albert's fault.
Anyway, we wont be inverting our Christmas tree this year. Not for No One.
Even if it does make even more space for even more presents underneath.
Which, I suppose, we are meant to assume is the whole point of it all.
I've not given any thought at all to Christmas cards this year. And I'm tempted to just not bother. But there are people I am pleased to hear from, even if its just once a year - and I would hope, I suppose, that its mutual. And there are some people who, for various reasons, I couldn't not send a card.
And we have just bought a new printer and can, once again, print in colour. So maybe I will make my own cards again this year, as I always used to do. In the good old days.
Except that its already the 8th, and I've got no further than these indecisive musings...
This made me larf however.
For those of you not from round our way, the "idiom" of this dialogue - though not the accent - is part of contemporary english yoof culture/street slang.
