Merry Christmas: 2020

The clock has just ticked over midnight here, making it officially 25th December. In a year that has carried with it some… unique… challenges, it is nice to finally have a day where Good Cheer and the better aspects of humanity outweigh the ubiquitous negativity.

In short, 2020 has not been the best of times, and 2021 might not actually be much better. But screw it: today it’s Christmas!

As I have noted before, my favourite Christmas song remains Good King Wenceslas, to a degree where I have retold the tale in one of my more infamous short stories.

So here is a delightful choral rendition:

Merry Christmas to all of you out there!
