“This is quite the season indeed for friendly meetings. At Christmas every body invites their friends about them, and people think little of even the worst weather. I was snowed up at a friend’s house once for a week. Nothing could be pleasanter.” (Emma by Jane Austen.)
We would agree entirely with Jane, provided you have some good books to hand to see you through!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all the Nethergate Writers.
