    This early advert for Christmas simply leaves me cold! This is mainly because I, like a lot of people, am not thinking so far forward as Christmas parties. Holidays, school is out, money is being spent on totally different things at this time of year. Am I religiously offended? No, because though I am a Christian, I don’t really kid myself that Santa Claus, mistletoe and holly are part of my beliefs. They are fun and have become part of our celebrations but Christ’s Birth has nothing to do with mince pies, jingle bells and snow. The hotel is out of order because they are unlikely to make the profits they anticipate by offering ten percent off for booking in July. Not good business practice.
