So we’ve finally decorated the tree, got (almost) all the presents bought and now it’s time to settle down to enjoy the final days before Christmas.

I hope you all have better things to do now than read another blog post by me so I’m just sending Christmas greetings and I won’t be posting anything else until the New Year.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that when I’m not dancing tango I do a lot of street skating. Every year the skaters celebrate Christmas with a skate through town wearing Santa costumes. This year I missed it (I was dancing), but thanks to Patrick Goldyn’s brilliant photography I can bring you a photo from last year for my virtual Christmas card. (I am in there somewhere, honest.)

As far as the dancing goes, on Boxing Day I will, along with hundreds of others, the dancing Tango at the Royal Festival Hall. It’s a free event (with a free lesson for absolute beginners) and lots of fun to join in or just watch (there will be exhibitions). There’s a nice cafe in the Royal Festival Hall, so you can just buy a copy and sit there watching the floor show below. It would be nice if some of you made it stop details are at: http://tangoonthethames.co.uk/?p=283

Anyway, whatever you are doing this Christmas (I hope reading will feature somewhere), I hope you have a fabulous time and I look forward to (virtually) seeing you again in the New Year.
