Weekend Herald - Canvas - - UPFRONT - MICHELLE HUR­LEY

Our colum­nist, Me­gan Ni­col Reed, hit the nail on the head last week when writ­ing about Christ­mas, by not­ing that it falls, for many of us, at the same time as the fin­ish of school and work, and the be­gin­ning of the sum­mer hol­i­days. Which means, es­sen­tially, many of us (and to be hon­est, when I say many, I’m talk­ing largely about women, for whom the present-shop­ping and wrap­ping, school hol­i­day pro­gramme-booking and des­per­ately-try­ing-to-find-a-win­dow-cleaner-be­fore-Christ­mas jobs seem to be­fall) are wound a just lit­tle more tightly than we would like. So I re­ally hope, that by the time you read this, you have fin­ished work, the tree is up, the presents are bought (apart from that one for your cousin who you com­pletely for­got about — but that’s what Plant Barn is for), and you are head­ing into a se­ries of days that in­volve too much eat­ing, drink­ing if that’s your thing and the prom­ise of daily naps to come. And just to en­sure you do sur­vive Christ­mas Day, Greg Bruce has spo­ken to our Prime Min­is­ter, a chef, a cou­ple of co­me­di­ans and an econ­o­mist, who all have ex­cel­lent ad­vice on how to get through the day. We’ll be tak­ing a very short break and will be back on board on Jan­uary 6. Un­til then, Merry Christ­mas and thanks for read­ing.
