It’s time to remove all trace of Christmas from our lives. Shred the cards, discard the turkey carcass you’ve been scraping at for sandwich meat, shove the tinsel back into the cupboard where it belongs- we MUST move on with our lives.
In all honesty, I’m quite happy to burn the tree this year, and the lights with it- it’s not been a great Christmas. In fact, let’s all have a massive bonfire of Christmas trees. Think about it- it would be a wonderful symbolic, thoughtful way of ending the festive period. And we could toast marshmallows.
Yes, that’s the way forward. People are always talking about the lack of community spirit these days, and they’re right. Well what better way to reinforce that thinning sense of community than with an annual tree-burning and marshmallow-eating event to see out each year? A chance for people to meet and just talk, almost like a picnic- but more fun because the pyromaniac in all of us just loves seeing things burn.
The more I think about it, the more I genuinely wish people did things like this.

Comment question of the day: What's your favourite annual tradition? Mine is probably waiting until the day after Easter and then buying out all the cheap Easter eggs.
Also, I’m sorry about not blogging for two days. But before you start screaming for me to hang, just know that I was celebrating Hanukah. So I don’t have to do a punishment! Hurrah hurrah hurrah.
