St. Andrews day serves as a very handy demarcation, much like the American Thanksgiving holiday. I can start to think about Christmas and not get angry now that it’s actually December. Of course it has been pretty much inescapable for the past few weeks so I have a pretty good idea of what I’m going to get people for presents and have made all my travel plans well ahead of time. Yay me.
At Whitespace (the design agency I work at) we’re once again taking care of the website and promoting the Bethany Caring Christmas Trees scheme in aid of the homeless. The idea is simple: buy your Christmas tree from them and that will give a hot meal and a bed for the night to someone who ordinarily would not have one.
