Many a happy time can be had just watching the skaters do their level best to entertain you, whether it be by 'wowing' with their skills or amusing you with their total lack of bodily co-ordination, balance or decorum.
The importance of Christmas is to remind ourselves of the values that we really wish to use as a template for our dealings with our families, friends, neighbours, co-citizens and fellow beings everywhere. It is also a time to spend dedicated quality time with our families and friends - something which tends to get neglected nowadays. Whilst some view Christmas as a time to reflect on their own faith, it has become a period that transcends one particular faith and can be happily embraced and enjoyed by all of us. HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY.
