I like Christmas time, but I don't like the commercial aspect of it, that just seems very unnecessary to me but I do enjoy spending uninterrupted amounts of time with family members. I don't have a big family, so that might be why I can enjoy it...!
As long as I get one good game of monopoly, and a few days of getting drunk before 2pm then I'm happy.
I normally get a slow down this time of year so less work now is normal and it allows me to deal with christmas without worrying about getting work done etc.
I am going to be doing 'work related' things though as well..
If nothing else I've got to look into this new eu rule about each eu country being charged at their own vat rates and whether designers like us actually are applicable to the law or not.... it's a bit cloudy for us from initial reading. It starts in January too which is bleh.
