Kalo Mina - Δεκέμβριος ...

Kαλό μήνα σε όλους - Good Month - December ...

Yes it's December - the official month of acceptable daytime drinking. (Yes I meant coffee)  It is the season to be jolly, after the winter blast, that has chilled the island  ...

December is the month of acceptable excess ...

- Christmas enters its 4th month in the shops
- Chocolate for breakfast, for the sugar hit, and feel good factor
- Fridge visits triple until you learn the chocolate is on the top shelf, of the adjacent cupboard
- Scissors/sellotape vanish almost and as if by magic
- Mulled everything - Yes why not, you say regardless 'Chin Chin'


Its the first day of Advent, and the last month of the year, just 25 days until Christmas, and 31 more until the 'quietest day of the year' - New years eve, bar the shotguns at midnight.

Its also the last chance to get on a ferry to the mainland, but you will have to shift quick, after the weather related cancellations of the last few days. ANES Proteus is doing a double run to the mainland departing at 07:45 and at 19:00 hrs

The Seafarers union, has called a 48-hour nationwide strike in all categories of ships from 6.00 am Friday, December 2, until 6.00 am Sunday, December 4

Even the boat crew would rather be tucked up on the mainland, until Sunday ...
