Aaaaaaah Christmas! The countdown, the lights, the music, the decorations, the atmosphere, the preparations…, the LETTER… and Christmas shopping. All this delicious waiting. So well-staged that we might almost forget about the main thing – hey, wait a minute: we still haven’t gotten a gift. Does that ring a bell? It does for us. We had…
