    Well, I am now no longer spending Xmas alone. I'm going to stay with a friend who also dislikes Xmas. We can be grumps together. Whilst I am there, I shall also see my parents and partake in family board games.

    How did you manage to stop getting card for 5 years? It's the last plague of Christmas I haven't managed to excise yet!

    The pedantic response is that it is advent. Christmas follows on.

    (O_o) [It's a quizzical expression.]

    Also, it is only advent if you are Christian. Otherwise, it is the 19th of December. [Typing "it is" feels weird.]
