Is is getting on for Christmas - or is it? The grass is as green as ever, the thermometer shows 10 - 11 degrees C., it is raining cats and dogs and we have gale force winds. The traditional Christmas tree has been erected in the middle of Lille lungegårdsvann where a fountain usually resides. The lights will go on this Sunday, but that is about all. The shops are doing there best to give an illusion of a White Christmas, but nobody is fooled.
Maybe we for once can avoid buying expensive presents we cannot afford to give to people we don't like and who will change them anyway?
