I don’t really do Christmas. But it would be churlish of me, particularly after such a hard year for everyone, not to extend my best wishes for readers who enjoy participating at this time of year. I hope you can find pleasure and delight in whatever family traditions and observances you follow–including the annual Monopoly game and arguing over what time the Queen is on this year before falling asleep on the sofa–as best you can in these necessarily restrictive and trying times.

Also, I did a little haiku.

It’s not enormously festive either, but I’m really making an effort here.

just like a normal haiku
but with more presence

Thank you for visiting Scribblans today. Sorry it probably wasn’t very good.
This bit of text here used to be me wittering on and effectively begging you to share the post, but I have decided not to bother with all that for 2021. Most people ignore it anyway.
