As the second hand glides effortlessly to the hour it is now midnight on Christmas eve. In fact it is now Christmas Day. There are no snowflakes falling from the sky and there is no jingle of bells, but what was that, I hear a swoosh and the sky lights up with thousands of tiny lights as a firework is let off in celebration .
The candle on the mantelpiece will flicker and the lights on the tree glisten with the baubles reflecting the festive scene.
I hope you all enjoy this Christmas, the company, the laughter, the smiles of children whose wishes have been met and for those who can relax in a chair and flick through the pages of their favorite fishing book whilst the rest of the family watch the seasonal films.
Enjoy your Christmas and may it be happy and bright, seasonal good wishes to you all.
