Another bonus Open thread for the festive season. Are you kicking back and relaxing in our Southron summer? Are you clearing snow off your driveway in the frozen North? Have you sadly not managed to take a break for the end of the year? Are you utterly exhausted by the expectations heaped upon you during the “break”? Or maybe secretly schadenfreuding in blissful solitude while noting others’ festive faux pas?
Share your current delights and frustrations, your best/worst bits of 2013, your hopes/fears for 2014, or anything else you want to talk about right now.
