AS Taylor Swift may say: 'Tis the damn season.
After a year like no other in 2020, we are coming to the business end of another year like no other in 2021.
Wednesday is the first day in December.
Pinch and a punch!
Time flies when you're having fun or navigating the ever-changing restrictions in a border bubble zone amid a global pandemic.
Now Christmas decorations can go up, festive lights can be switched on and Love Actually or A Bad Moms Christmas can be viewed on high rotation taking you right through to Boxing Day afternoon!
If you already did all of the above in October, you're ahead of the game!!
This will free up more time for Christmas gatherings.
It's natural to feel anxious when you have 10 events already booked for the month of December, more than the sum total of events for the whole rest of this year.
Go to another Christmas party. Going out two nights in a row will seem like a lot of effort at best and illegal at worst. But if you're double jabbed, you're free to play! More than likely you'll discover you never checked-out last night!!
Here's how to keep calm and count down the days until Christmas
Enjoy the season everyone.
Don't forget to check-in. And out!
