Merry Christmas, Everyone

We hope that wherever you are, whatever you are doing, you are healthy and happy.

We are also thinking of those who have neither. This time of year without someone you love is pretty grim, especially if it is the first time you’ve been on that particular emotional rollercoaster.

We’ll be taking a couple of days off to get some well-earned rest. See you later in the week.

  • Christmas is, traditionally, a time of hope; that is my wish for the coming year.

    Merry Christmas to all on LDV.

    Happy Christmas to Caron and all the Lib Dem Voice team 🙂 Thank you for all your hard work all through the year to make Lib Dem Voice such a brilliant site 🙂

    Merry Christmas! I’m optimistic about the Lib Dems’ prospects for 2019! I also want to pay my respects to Paddy Ashdown. I tried to write something the other day but I struggled to find the right words. He was a great liberal and had many great careers. I might buy his book the Cruel Victory. A soldier, diplomat, politician, author, amateur historian, language learner and family man. What a guy.

  • Though appreciating your sentiments, Caron some people like to be alone. We used to escape to the Lake District and enjoyed some wonderful Christmas Day picnics by my favourite lake, Wast Water.

    @Peter, it’s not about being alone by choice. It’s about being bereaved and spending the first Christmas without the person you have lost. That is grim.

    Yes it is, Caron. Realising that being on your own is not the end of the world can help to lessen the blow. Seeing something positive in a grim situation might help to make it less grim.
