So here we are at last. Christmas Eve. The last dash to the shops is done. The turkey is defrosted after its five day stint in the freezer and is sitting in the fridge waiting for tomorrow. Our first bottle of Christmas wine has just been opened with a satisfying sigh of New Zealand goodness, and my glass is raised in salute to you all.
Merry Christmas. Joy to the world. Solace to those who suffer. Peace to us all.
