Another Christmas in Crapchester
Yes, it's that time of year again. Incredibly, I've been making and posting these Christmas films for six years now - and still nobody has watched them! Anyway, here's the latest, with what is, apparently, my favourite seasonal musical accompaniment. Having rewatched the previous five films today, I've been surprised by the number of times I've used this arrangement of 'Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas' on them. The fact is that I do like it - it has a certain melancholy feel to it which reflects the nature of Christmas: it's both a time for celebration, but also a time for reflection and remembrance of absent friends. Whilst it raises all sorts of hopes, it is also a reminder of how far short we've fallen of those raised last Christmas. OK, I've depressed you all enough, time to go off and enjoy the festive spirit. Personally, I'm planning a quiet night in - with Christmas Eve falling on a Saturday, I can guarantee that the pub will be full of even more oafs than usual at this time of year. So, a Merry Christmas to you all!
