Mocking around the Christmas tree
I’ve heard it said more than once that Christmas is not the same as it used to be, that the real spirit of the season is not adhered to and that there’s too much commercialisation involved. To these people, I say – "If it was so much better in the past, why don’t you live in the past and carry on the traditions of the past. No one asked you to change your belief system or alter your ways." For me, Christmas is all about sitting around the Christmas tree and mocking the bejaysus out of each other. We have a saying in our house “He who mocks loudest, leaves proudest”. It just so happens that I leave proudest each year but then again I was born to mock the boat!
