On the one hand there’s fun, good food, flirtiness, parties, presents, treats and all the rest of it. On the other hand, for some people, it’s being stuck with relatives you don’t much like, vast amounts of cooking and washing up, sprout farts, being cold, worrying about the cost or, if you don’t celebrate Christmas, feeling out of step with colleagues and friends, and being inconvenienced by the way the whole UK seems to shut down around you for the best part of a week.
Without wanting either to piss on anyone’s chips or annoy them with unwanted whooping celebratoriness when they’re not feeling it, I will just venture to suggest that a good read is one of the easiest and most accessible ways of making your day better. So don’t forget to treat yourself to something nice and plan a slot of time to spend enjoying it.
If you generally like it seasonal, there’s plenty from https://www.facebook.com/pages/Xcite-christmas-books/592568767446224, or you could try http://kayjaybee.me.uk/ebooks/christmas-kink/ and if you want to think about anything and everything other than Christmas, there’s bound to be something hot and steamy and summery out there for you, such as http://smutters.co.uk/antho/smut-by-the-sea-vol-1
And if those links are all a bit sloppy, that’s what comes of posting afte3r a little seasonal drinky! Midwinter/solstice/Xmas/Yule/end-of-year greetings to all.
