A Merry Little One

As this post hits the internet, I'm hopefully just minutes away from sitting down to our traditional Christmas dinner... which consists of a very untraditional curry-based spread at our favourite local restaurant. My family really, really hates turkey.

"Excited" is a subpar adjective in this case, but it's as close as I can get to summing up my feelings about this particular event. This is my first year going as a vegan and, as saag aloo is one of my truest loves, I'm really looking forward to it.

Believe it or not, I didn't actually come here just to talk to you about curry. I'm here just to say thank you. Despite what I just told you about my dietary choices, I do like a bit o' (metaphorical) cheese every now and again*; so there seems to be no better day than this one to thank you**. Without going Full Oscars on you, this year has been seriously improved by having you around. -Bursts into dramatic tears.-

 

*and by this I mean: at any and every opportunity to gush and feel the love I do, and I'm not sorry about it

**besides, of course, Thanksgiving, but being English I don't celebrate this one.

Jokes aside: wherever you are and whatever you are up to today, celebrating or otherwise, I hope it treats you right.
