Wishing You All A Very Merry Christmas

"Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!" ~Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers

I love the sentiment, but also the Victorian use of long sentences with a liberal scattering of semi-colons and commas but few full stops.

Happy Hogmanay!
