Seasons Greetings to everyone (I can't say Merry Christmas because that is not P.C. according to some on here).

What will you all be doing around this festive season? Are you looking forward to seeing your relatives? Will you be going on a holiday?

Please tell all!

I will start. I am not doing overly much over the summer other than relaxing and doing the usual summer activities (i.e. go to the beach, watch the cricket, etc.). I am looking forward to seeing some relatives and generally get along with most of them although some of them can be snobs or act like they are members of the royal family (not a positive thing). I doubt I will be going on a holiday.

I take it you wont be impersonating members of the Royal family over the Christmas period?
I cant say I blame you.

On the Morning of Christ's Nativity, by John Milton

I
THis is the Month, and this the happy morn
Wherein the Son of Heav'ns eternal King,
Of wedded Maid, and Virgin Mother born,
Our great redemption from above did bring;
For so the holy sages once did sing, [ 5 ]
That he our deadly forfeit should release,
And with his Father work us a perpetual peace.

II
That glorious Form, that Light unsufferable,
And that far-beaming blaze of Majesty,
Wherwith he wont at Heav'ns high Councel-Table, [ 10 ]
To sit the midst of Trinal Unity,
He laid aside; and here with us to be,
Forsook the Courts of everlasting Day,
And chose with us a darksom House of mortal Clay.
III
Say Heav'nly Muse, shall not thy sacred vein [ 15 ]
Afford a present to the Infant God?
Hast thou no vers, no hymn, or solemn strein,
To welcom him to this his new abode,
Now while the Heav'n by the Suns team untrod,
Hath took no print of the approching light, [ 20 ]
And all the spangled host keep watch in squadrons bright?
IV
See how from far upon the Eastern rode
The Star-led Wisards haste with odours sweet:
O run, prevent them with thy humble ode,
And lay it lowly at his blessed feet; [ 25 ]
Have thou the honour first, thy Lord to greet,
And joyn thy voice unto the Angel Quire,
From out his secret Altar toucht with hallow'd fire.
 
:D

Wishing all of you a wonderful season and health in the coming year.

I just had some nice Italian dinner with a glass of red...relaxing with a kitty and a blanket.
Cheers!
