Ah. Christmas in England.

Miserable , rainy weather, trains cancelled, rail workers on strike, police and firefighters on strike, airlines and airports on strike, mail unions on strike, failed postal deliveries, online vendors not managing to deliver in time for Christmas, murder, death and destruction in the news, rampant petrol prices, drunk teenagers vomiting in the streets - sleeping in their own faeces, and rank corruption in the government. Yes, it's Christmas in England! Sorry - it's "Festive Seasonal Celebration" in England, because we can't call it Christmas here either. Still - it's nice to be with family.
