Merry Christmas, everyone!

It's Christmas! Hooray! Happy Christmas, one and all! As you may have heard by now, we here at Delavigne have been having a jolly old sing song to celebrate Christmas this year! I'm sure you appreciated our tuneful singing and harmonious voices. We're actually considering starting a Delavigne chamber choir.

We'd love to learn about how Christmas is celebrated in your part of the world, or, if you don't celebrate Christmas, then tell us about what you do celebrate!

Here are some ideas:
  • What's your favourite Christmas song?
  • What did you eat/are you going to eat this Christmas?
  • What gifts did you give and receive?
  • What Christmas traditions do you enjoy?
  • Does Father Christmas really exist?
My favourite Christmas song is this one, by Slade. Rock on! I'm planning a slap-up meal of turkey, stuffing, sprouts, roast potatoes, parsnips, and pigs in blankets with a few of my British friends (and Brian Jones) later today. I don't know what presents I'm going to get yet, but I've bought a load of cheap tat for all my loved ones! I think my favourite Christmas tradition has to be the 'getting drunk from 10AM one'. Hic.

So what about you? Let us know by leaving a comment!

Finally, don't forget that next month's Funky Friday will feature Bruno and Betty's blossoming romance! If you have any tips for the big man, feel free to leave a comment here too: we were too busy singing to help him prepare for his date!

Christmas is coming and an announcement

Season's Greetings, everyone! Here at the Delavigne Office, we're getting very excited about Christmas already. I've had this song in my head for the past two weeks! Like every year, we'll be doing a 'secret santa' in the office, with lots of fun presents! I've bought this great gift for one of my lucky colleagues! What are YOU going to ask Santa Claus for this Christmas? I'm going to ask for one of these. Ace!

I have a Christmassy announcement to make while I'm here. On December 25th, Funky Friday will be a CHRISTMAS SPECIAL! Don't worry - we'll return to Bruno and Betty's romance at the end of January!

I leave you with this: a wonderful video about how to make a wonderful, traditional British Christmas cake. Om nom nom.
