Last Monday was ‘blue’. This week is supposed to be the gloomiest week of the year (for those of is in the northern hemisphere at least). All that’s left of Christmas and New Year are the debts and broken resolutions. Easter and Spring Bank holidays are a long way off (even though the Easter eggs have been in the shops since Boxing Day).
I don’t buy it.
For me, the days are getting longer. Snow can’t lie for long if we get it now. Spring is on its way. People and businesses are up and about again, getting stuck in with new plans for making the world a better place.
But here’s a practical idea for next year:
Take one of the too many get-togethers that happen in the run-up to Christmas and move it to the beginning of 2021. The best works Christmas party I ever went to took place in February.
Celebrate each other outside the prescribed calendar of feelings.
