I was a bit disappointed to see (or not see) there was no Happy Christmas greetings to your readers in the paper, not even a sprig of holly, even the TV paper just had the date, no Christmas Day or Boxing Day on the heading, is everybody feeling miserable?
Something nice and cheerful, a Christmas poem or carol would have been good, also I notice the political letters keep coming, come on folks! What will be, will be, Brexit or no! Sort it out later, surely even the would be politicians, who write the lengthy boring letters, must have had a mince pie or a ‘gamba’ over the festive season.
I do wish everybody a Happy and Prosperous New Year, best wishes to all, for goodness sake enjoy your life.
Maybe it went unnoticed to you, but we did have a large ‘Merry Christmas’ banner on the front page of the Christmas edition (plus Santa hat on our logo) and a ‘Happy New Year’ one last week. Our What’s On section included a box wishing all our readers the same on both weeks from all at CBNews and we also carried a full page of greetings with pictures in both editions. We regret you did not notice these.
Having said all this, we are a ‘proper’ newspaper that aims to give reader just that – news, and without skipping weeks over the festive season. Sadly, with Brexit all in the air, this is still expats’ main concern regardless of what Santa left in their stockings, because indeed we all want to continue to enjoy our lives not just at Christmas but throughout the rest of the year too – and a lot of that depends on the Brexit outcome!
