WHEN holidays are here, women work harder than when it is the regular time of the year. My husband and kids look forward to holidays, but, at times, I don’t. From this point of view, holidays mean more cooking and cleaning up, more arrangements to be made, more plans to be sorted, more guests to be served, more drunk relatives to steer away from the bar, more laundry to be done, more noise and confusion around the house and more things that have to be taken out and then, put away.

It is that time of the year when everything comes to a virtual standstill. Eleven days from today, we shall be celebrating Christmas – a day that is known in the Christian world as the birthday of Jesus Christ.
