Twenty five, twelve, twenty twelve
Diane once asked for photos of Melbourne Town Hall and this is not perhaps how she imagined I would respond, but it is our town hall.
Hindu, Buddhist and Muslim workmates never complain but a Jewish neighbour recently complained to me how tired she was of being wished merry christmas. Yet another Jewish workmate was telling me about the christmas presents he had bought for his grandchildren. Our Hindu friend celebrates christmas, though of course not the religious aspect. Go figure. Did I hear that Sydney's Lakemba Mosque issued instructions to followers to not wish merry christmas to christians? I'll remember that next eid.
This is secular Australia and my blog is all encompassing, and so to some, Merry Christmas to you and to others, Compliments of the Season. Regardless, pour yourself a glass and put your feet up.
