I think what I meant was Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year!
It makes me laugh to think that we are not supposed to celebrate Christmas in case we offend other religions and non believers. This is despite the fact we are supposed to honour the festivals of other religions!
So stuff all the PC brigade, remember Christmas isn’t just about shopping and think of those who have to work over Christmas!
