Christmas is a particularly bitter-sweet time for me for one reason or another. I usually have a brief five minutes with the tissues then pull myself together but I was nearly, publically, brought down to a sobbing heap the other day in WH Smiths when I came across a series of Christmas cards with quotes on.
The particular one that threatened to send me blubbering from the shop was by American author and humourist Erma Bombeck and had on the front the following:
"There's nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child."
And I thought 'OMG thats it!' (Well, not all of IT, but certainly part of IT) but I'm not sure how appropriate it is for a Christmas Card?
