The Armchair Gooner

An Arsenal blog bringing you news, opinion and humour on a daily basis. Well, I'll try at the very least…

Merry Christmas from The Armchair Gooner!

Merry Christmas.

Ahhh. Christmas is upon us. The day has finally arrived after what seems like an eternity of advertisements and build-up. 

Today is a day I celebrate despite being an agnostic. I don’t much care for the religious aspects associated with the 25th of December. I enjoy the gatherings, the jocundity, the feasting, and the exchanging of lavish and unnecessary gifts. 

If you’re a regular reader, or simply a first time peruser; I hope you have a wonderful day and thoroughly enjoy yourself. Of course, If you’re reading from a country that doesn’t celebrate Christmas, or you’re of a different religious persuasion altogether; I hope you simply just enjoy your day. 

Best wishes, thank you for all your support over the past year, and up the Arsenal!

James ‘Raul’ Stokes.

    Merry X-mas, James. Though, I have one question: shouldn’t you celebrate X-mas at 10th May?

      I’m sure this is a silly question; why May 10th?

    Well it was until I saw yesterdays comment by me deleted. For this reason, I reserve your festive greetings until one knows why this wretchedness has befallen my rhetoric. We are legion.
