1. Receiving the first Christmas card – seeing what people have been up to all year – especially those across the miles.
2. Making plans for Christmas – who will buy the champagne for the traditional Christmas morning bucks fizz? Who is bringing crackers (it’s always me…as I like the ones with nice gifts!)? Who would like to volunteer to make mince pies, almond tarts etc.?
3. Receiving lots of invitations to meet up with friends during the Festive period – today’s invitation “Horse ride in the snow” (well, hopefully in the snow). Yesterday’s a black tie do for friends. Tomorrow’s…who knows.
