Facets of Christmas time

​A period of contrasts from sepia through to dazzling gold

A time of poignancy, reflection and joy

A religious celebration transposed into a season of gluttony and greed

A time of gift giving, family celebrations and gatherings

A time of arguements, marriage breakdowns and strife

A time of love, war and hate

Each facet sharpened because of the season

Poverty versus wealth

Loneliness versus family life

Love versus hate

Outlined in sharper contrast in a season of supposed joy

May the immutable values of Christmastime 

Remain through the year
