Christmas! It's just what I always wanted
It is the time of Christmas cheer, a time that is punctuated by Christmas parties, where much of that cheer can be punctured by the presence in the room of people who we do not like.
That may be putting it mildly.
These are the people who you avoid as much as possible during the year and now face the possibility of having to share a mince pie with them while wearing a silly jumper, secure in the knowledge that you are not on their Christmas card list either.
