There's a saying often used by dog lovers - 'A puppy is not just for Christmas'.

So the lovely little fluffy puppy with the dewy doe eyes is hugged all day Christmas day but then when the family gets sick of having to mind him the whole year round, off he's sent to the pound, or worse.

I found myself in our parish church just after dark, just before Christmas. The church was silent and serene. Candles flickered and the church was half lit.
