My friends know I don't like most of what passes as Christmas. The more it rolls around the more I object to being force fed Christmas songs, tv adverts and related decorations.
So here I am in my favourite diner/cafe hoping for a quiet read of my motorbike magazines. Instead I am being assailed with a medley of Christmas pop songs telling me what Christmas is about. Not one is to do with advent.
I feel like someone's religion is being forced on me through the transformation of public space, by their worship and icons.
My wife thinks I should just chill and make the most of it ;-)
