Does December get shorter every year? It seems that way, but some of the highlights so far include:

– A Christmas party for the youth club featuring an ugly Christmas jumper (“sweater” in American English) contest, crazy gifts, carolling, mince pies (a traditional treat) and plenty of biscuits (or cookies, to Americans).

– A men’s dinner that was a massive feast, where it was great to see some new faces.

– A trip to Northern Ireland to see a friend baptised. He is the son of our former teammates and used to be in the youth club here.

– Watching Rebekah’s face light up brighter than the lights as she re-discovers Christmas.

December may seem like the shortest month in the year, but it’s still sweet – and I’m not just talking about all the amazing biscuits Jessica has been making!

I suppose the emphasis on food here probably gives away the fact that Seth writes the blog…
