each in your own way, even if it’s a peculiar way, even if Christmas causes you to eat strange things you wouldn’t normally touch. I hope the festivities induced you to drink more than you normally do during the day and that this departure from habit, in turn, encouraged you to kiss those you don’t normally kiss although you want to. I also hope that those of you who normally misunderstand this kind of advice had the sense to keep your hands off your sister-in-law. This is a celebration of peace and an act of belief that the sun will return, not a time to look for trouble.
Myself, I have already forgiven those who gave me presents I don’t deserve.
