That’s what Tiny Tim said in Dickens’s ‘Christmas Carol’, and it’s so poignant as the huge Pagan festival that pretends it is Christian, hits full ‘Rock’n’roll’.

What’s wrong wrong with having a good party and celebrating? Nothing at all, I’m all for it! But let’s not pretend that it’s something to do with Christianity For it has been a focus for rebirth since time began… Welcoming back the life force that is the sun ( and not just the ‘son’).

Kensington, in West London is one of the richest places on Earth. There is more money here than in the whole of Northern Ireland. It is home to many of the richest people on the planet and a safe place for the Russian Mafia to buy all their property. Why launder money when the sycophantic British Government can allow every criminal in the world a safe place to ‘invest’ their ill-begotten gains?

But hey this is Christmas! Who cares about poverty, homelessness, youth unemployment and war when you can party on down. Sorry to be such a bore… Bah humbug I hear you say! Nah, not me…

I have been enjoying the company of old friends as above including my wonderful and colourful friend Finn Hagan from the Shankill in Belfast. He has been entertaining the masses outside of Selfridges in Oxford Street.

And so, for me, I am off to Amsterdam tonight to stay with my dear friends and fellow Vikings, Carro and Danne on their yacht ‘Happy Six’ For Christmas and the New Year. How wonderful to end an amazing year in such company!

May I take this opportunity to wish you all the happiest of festivals… May you find peace and joy. Thank you all for your company and contributions to my website. You have made it so worthwhile.

Finally, please spare a thought for the families and victims of the Chinese Communist Party who practice the art of Falun Gong. Many have been tortured and murdered, including having their organs removed and sold. His genocide is going on under our noses and yet almost nothing has been said… What a sad reflection of our world this is…


God bless you one and all.

    Happy ….holidays? 🙂 to you too Poppy, It seems the New Year will bring great changes and revolutions, for the good I prefer to believe. Might be a bumpy ride but there’s a lot of dirty washing to do. The best anyone can do it remain true to themselves and help one another as much as possible, even a heartfelt smile for a stranger can change some ones life. Much love and many hugs from me to you, dear sister xxxxxxxxxxxx

    Take care.

      Bless you Tim and the same to you! Yes…. Unfortunately I am stuck on the Megabus waiting for the Port of Dover to reopen… Oh dear I know how to pick my times!

  4. I hope you make it to Amsterdam safely, and for Christmas, Poppy. Oensker en riktig god jul og godt nyttaar til dig og alle din venner. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New year to you and all your friends,( no matter how you celebrate it). (Yeh, the Christians did hijack the Viking pagan rituals) They had to convert them somehow.

      Hi Amanda! Yes, I’ve just arrived after all the ferries were cancelled due to hurricane force winds in the English Channel. In the end the coach driver managed to hop onto one of the channel tunnel trains… Great fortune! Have a wonderful Yule tide!
