I don’t have any kids and I’m not a Christian, so my Christmas is all about memories. It’s just a festive time of year, especially if you don’t have to get caught in the rat race of shopping and gift exchanges. As a writer, I like Christmas stories — A Christmas Carol and Miracle on 34th St are so tidy and complete that I can hear them over and over. I even put up a tree in my solitary apartment. I don’t give a rat’s ass whether anyone sees it but me and my little bird — it’s a comfort and reminds me of a very happy childhood.

Now, I buy what I like in the price range I decide when I want..what a concept.
