I’m a little late today.
I had to go down to the village for a meeting concerning something of grave concern.
There was only the one item on the agenda –
“Should we remove the village Christmas tree?”
The debate raged. Some were in favour of removing it, while some wanted it to stay. Some wanted the baubles removed but the tree left standing. I voted to remove the tree but leave the baubles where they were.
In the end, we decided to leave the fucking thing there in all its glory. It’s not doing any harm and it saves us the trouble of taking it down and putting it back up again at the end of the year.
After all, we stopped removing the street decorations about ten years ago.
It gives the tourists something to puzzle over.
