    My family are miles away and I would like to do something different. I'm not averse to celebrating It but not bothered if I don't. I know it's too early to mention the "c" word but I may need to book up.

    Surely you could still go away. And what is this fib about being 64, olds?

    Travel. Someplace Christmas isn't such a biggie. Or just stay home and get sozzled.

    It's only a day.

    Or something completely different. Volunteer at a homeless charity or other charitable organisation and then go for an indulgent break.

    Spending the day with my grandson who won't be aware of the significance as he'll be barely 3 months old. It will also be the first time ever(I'm 56) that I won't have spent it all with my mum. She's got dementia and like my grandson won't be aware of the significance. I guess we will go and visit her for a while though. Son-in-law is a whizz in the kitchen so at least I'll have lots of help! As we get stuck into the sherry, fizz, and port!

    Convert to paganism and celebrate the midwinter solstice three days earlier?

    The Roman thought the winter solstice was December 25th... odd coincidence.

    Lots of food.

    Plenty of alcohol.

    Long winter walk.

    Boxsets on Netflix

    Build snowmen (although it'll probably exceed 20.C somewhere in the UK on Christmas Day the way the weather is going at present!)

    So be a pagan for the day. A visit to Glastonbury ? The traffic around Stonehenge is busy every day of the year !
    What do pagans eat ? And what should I wear ?
