Like last year, I know that a lot of my friends have family living in other places, or do not necessarily get on with them. So I would like to invite you all here. In the interest of allowing those to come who do have other arrangements on Christmas, (and as the 25th is Anna's birthday) we will be having Christmas dinner here on the 24th. Any and all are welcome to attend. Deirdre and Jacinta will once again be providing dinner, so you know there will be enough for you and any or all of your friends. And even their friends.
I would love to spend Christmas with the people I love.
