I know the end of the Gregorian calendar year is not a holiday for everyone in the world, but it is in Australia, and I’m enjoying it very much. I’ll be back to blogging and forums in the new year, or earlier if I’m in the mood.
I’ll enjoy several beers, BBQs and an atheist-flavoured xmas: no carol singing or other religious stuff, just time with family and giving gifts to my kids. I go to bed fairly early every night, whether it’s new years or not. I got my son lots of Lego, my daughter lots of books, other toys, plus a media player for all their movies. They’ll be very happy.
I borrowed some David Eddings books from the library to re-read, too, and maybe if I’m feeling intellectual will mix it up with some science books. I’ve got quite a few to read waiting on my shelf from Antonio Damasio, Satyajit Das, Chris Frith,Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins.
So, happy holidays!
