Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree . . . Oh God. Is it really THAT time of the year again? Strange people singing stranger songs. About snow, for Christ's sake. We live in Australia. The only place you'll find snow on Christmas Day is your freezer. Don't even get me started on Santa Claus and his sordid relationship with Coca-Cola. What's more, my own birthday, being so close to Christmas, gets absorbed into a general celebration. I reckon the Grinch had it right after all. So if I seem a little jaded, a bit Scrooge-ish, fine! Just call me Grinchy.
