In praise of… Christmas Eve

I loved Christmas Eve as a kid. The anticipation, the build-up, the sheer excitement of the big day to come. Arguably better than Christmas Day itself, in fact. It’s not quite the same when you are 36, however, but it’s still all good, even for a confirmed atheist like myself (as if Christmas is a ‘religious’ festival anymore). I’m convinced that there used to be better things on the TV than the rubbish they’ve put on today though. Really, what a load of old crap (hurray for the Peep Show night on Channel 4 otherwise we’d be doomed).

A slightly surreal day for me too in that it is my last day in my current job. I start a new role on Tuesday 4th January which, for the first time in nearly 14 years of working, will not be in the City. Interesting times. Ten days off ahead now….. Hmmmm, days off.

Anyway, if you’re reading, enjoy Christmas Eve and, indeed, Christmas Day.
