X'mas 2013. Each year during Christmas a group of us would get together at a friend's place in Damansara to be merry. The same old Christmas tree would be there in the living room and the kids would swap cheap gifts while the grown-ups happily trade gossips. This year, however, I must give this annual ritual a miss. Y'see this is the first time I have a varsity-going kid and he's come back for a Christmas break and so we're going to get together to do our own thing, starting with turkey brunch, and singing "So this is Christmas ..." as sung by Christian Perri because the kids have no idea (yet) who Lennon was and what war he was going on about.
It's a time to be merry, not for fussing or fighting, so to all Malaysians, especially our Christian brothers and sisters, we wish you a Merry Christmas!
p.s. Some of us, however, are beyond redemption. Read Different X'mas Messages
