I am waiting for Christmas, are you?

Back in September I took my core leave… well over two weeks of which I spent an entire week coding 2.x of Contextual Related Posts. Having released the new version of Contextual Related Posts, we set out on a nice holiday across the Republic of Ireland.

While it’s supposed to be part of post that is pending (and hopefully, will be written about), for now I put up a few photographs on a revived WordPress.com blog.

Ever since I got back to London back in September, I’ve spent most of my time working non stop on my day job. It’s that time of the year! Plugin development has continued, although rather slowly and I’ll be back with a good update to both Top 10 and Contextual Related Posts soon.

But, it’s December once again and it’s soon going to be Christmas time. And, now that Thanksgiving is also over, it’s officially time to start playing Christmas music.

And, since it is the time to listen to Christmas music, how about this super cool and very big Christmas playlist on Spotify.

So, is it beginning to look a lot like Christmas?

A Merry Greek Christmas

I love Christmas. As far as I can remember, Christmas has been good for me. I have some of the fondest memories of my life associated Christmas. It is little wonder that I look forward to Christmas every year.

This year, Christmas was different. Different because, for the first time in my life I was not at home for Christmas.

I began Christmas this year by going to Westminster Cathedral for the 6pm mass on 24th. The church was decorated with a huge Christmas tree, but it was also rather cold, since Christmas Eve was cold this side of the world. Met up with a college pal for a quiet dinner. Was home before the clock struck 12.

Pavlos had invited me over for Christmas lunch with his family. Christmas lunch was in the traditional Greek style with caviar, soup, sweets, desert and a full roasted and stuff turkey. I don’t think I need to say that I ate to my fullest :)

My plans for boxing day went for a toss with the tube strike. However, I plan to finally go out and see London tomorrow, before I report to work on Tuesday.

With that I’ll leave you with this beautiful song.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my visitors. May you have a great year ahead.

And, here’s a treat to know what the story of Christmas would have been like if we had Facebook 2010+ years back!

Merry Christmas!
