I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best for the coming New Year!!!

(Apologies, but I didn’t realize until after uploading to YouTube that “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” begins to replay for 9 seconds at the end of the video – I don’t know why, but I hope it doesn’t spoil your Christmas)
