Bah, humbug!

The latest communication from my youngest son’s school, to remind parents about Christmas lunch:

“Dear Parents/Guardians

Just a reminder that Christmas lunch for all students is available tomorrow – Wednesday, 14th December.

Please ensure¬†your child’s lunch card is topped up as no loans will be given for Christmas lunch.”

My emphasis in the text above, as it struck me as a particularly unfestive attitude worthy of old Ebenezer Scrooge himself.

God bless us, every one!
