Happy Christmas.

If it's Christmas Day where you are, and you're reading this on the 25th itself, allow me to wish you a happy Christmas. Now, if you unfortunately happen to be stuck in the doldrums at the moment, I know this could seem a contradiction in terms. Should this be the case, it's understandable that you might be feeling more 'bah humbug' than 'happy holidays'. However, from long experience I know that it really is possible to temporarily allow a chink of light to pass through the curtains even on the darkest of days.

So whether you're going to be with family and friends today, or you're due to be keeping your own company, please remember that Moodscope is thinking of you and wishes you well.

You might imagine that as it's Christmas Day I'd give you a day off from suggestions, but I do have one thought for you.

December 25th is one of those times of year when you get the feeling that everyone has plans, everybody's day is fully scheduled.

But you'd be amazed at how delighted someone could be if you were to pay them an impromptu visit, or make a surprise phone call. It doesn't have to be for long, and you don't have to do or say anything deep and meaningful, other than to let them know you were thinking of them.

Perhaps there's a neighbour whose day would be made by seeing you. Or a friend who'd be delighted to hear from you. You'll know they're pleased by the tone of their voice - and if they're pleased, I think you will be too.

One more thing. Our little team loves running Moodscope, but I can tell you that it wouldn't be half as rewarding without the presence of your company.

So thank you for being here, and please have yourself a safe and happy Christmas day.
