Happy Holidays!

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.
