I know, it’s a crappy Americanism but occasionally as I’m not religious I feel somewhat of a hypocrite celebrating Christmas. I am spiritual (not as in the I don’t go to church but am scared of dying crowd) but organised religion just puts me on edge nowadays more than ever.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas time. I think it’s a magical time of year and a great opportunity for parties with people I’ve not seen for too long. Edinburgh is just fantastic in December: the German Market and Winter Wonderland, the fairy lights on trees along Princess Street and leading up to the Castle, the Salvation Army band playing in the West End.
I wish I had the equipment, time and (let’s face it) skill to take some good photos to share but I’ll leave it to the official site.
Don’t think what is think of what could be.
