Now that we’ve got my birthday out of the way, I am feeling more than usually festive. Perhaps it’s just a red wine hangover, or a little soft spot created by collecting Bernard from his friend’s house yesterday, where they were putting up the christmas tree. Yes, on 29th November. In the Philippines, where they come from, apparently they usually put the tree up in September, so this was pretty restrained of them.
What this blog needs… what this blog really needs, is a cultural countdown to the end of year festivities. And what this blog does best is collaborate and diversify. So starting tomorrow and culminating on the 24th December we are aiming for a daily contributed post about your own festivities, your family traditions, your childhood memories, your utter loathing for the festering season, whatever you would like to write. Who’s in? Comment, email or tweet @ubotka if you have something to say, and let me know if there’s a particular date on which you would like to say it.
