Presents and patience

I know Christmas is all about the presents, isn't it? Well no - not really, but presents are important.

But often children miss the real importance of the gifts and all they want to do is rip off that paper and see what Santa's served.

Some children never grow up and to make it worse, the lack of parental control means they don't even wait until the big day itself to tear the treasure to tatters.

Don't believe me? Well I posted off a present and card to a mate and she sent a text, thanking me - in great detail. In fact there was so much detail that it meant the present had been opened.

It's no big deal, but surely Christmas is about self-control, not giving into those urges and behaving?

Stop laughing at the back!
