Happy Christmahannukwanzadan…

The Baby Jesus (tm)

Yes dear readers.

It’s no longer enough to say happy holidays if one is being PC. Urban Dictionary’s word of the day is Christmahannukwanzadan, meshing all the festive holiday wishes into one (the idea being no offence be caused to anyone of any particular persuasion).

I’d rarely class myself a traditionalist. But today of all days, I’d just like to wish you all a happy Christmas. I hope the festive season brings you peace, happiness, goodwill and if you are a shopkeeper, a very full till.

James Naughtie indeed…

UPDATE: ‘It’s very hard to talk about it, without saying it’, says Andrew Marr. After repeating the Naughtie remark that his colleague made earlier in the day…

Get me a Beetle…

The oldies claim life was ever so much better during the infamous ‘halcyon days’. As we struggle on through this cold snap you have to wonder if they have a point. Cars are less reliable. Trains virtually inoperable. And don’t get me started on the X-Factor…

But, my thoughts are elsewhere this evening. My memory is flitting back to the early noughties. A good ad / bad ad training session with the inimitable Dr. Steve Harrison.
