THE LAST LAUGH
Eat, drink and be merry or so the saying goes. While you’ve probably got the eating and drinking down, the focus on merriment can often get caught up in the stress of the Christmas program. The key to success is not to take anything too seriously. So your parsnips go a bit crispy and the cat gets at the tree - it’s those imperfections of life that make it beautiful.
That applies equally to gifting. While it can be fulfilling to find a gift that perfectly matches your loved one’s desires, sometimes you should just go for a laugh. A jolly dog-shaped cushion or the ultimate Christmas jumper all come with added extra cheer. And who doesn’t want a dose of ho ho ho at this time of year?
