The decorations have been in the shops for months, the clocks have changed, sooner or later we are going to have to face up to the inevitability of another Christmas, and there is nothing we can do to prevent it.

Take a moment to look forward to your long weekend of seasonal festivities with close family, distant relatives, and the not-quite-distant-enough ones. Think of the present opening, the joy of seeing another pair of socks, the screams of rage that inform you that Ben 10 was last years hot thing and a completely inappropriate present to have given this year. Just think about the meal of curiously burned stuffing inside a not-quite-cooked turkey which you will then smother with cranberry jam for no apparent culinary purpose. Spare a moment to consider the bowl of sprouts and the fun of watching adults attempting to fool children into thinking they are edible. Perhaps after the meal someone will suggest that you all play a board game together, wonít that be fun! The best you can hope for is that they will all be asleep before the Dr Who Christmas special starts.

If these thoughts of Christmas have left you in need of a stiff drink, donít worry you are not alone, and we have a plan. The Ubuntu UK Christmas event will be held at The Hub Islington on December 21st from 7PM. You can register your attendance here (http://ubunt.eu/c2)(launchpad account required). We would invite you to bring some Christmas and/or Ubuntu themed nibbles and optionally a bottle of something to ward off the cold. Take an evening out to relax with friends and steel yourself for what is to come.

Aww boo! I'm going to be in Birmingham when this is happening. I really want to try one of those Ubuntu mince pies! :(
