The spirit of Christmas
Due to the heavy dose of yuletide cheers going around I thought it only natural to write a post about the spirit of Christmas. That of course, as you well know, is Scotch.
This of course is not a hard and fast rule. Since we live in a secular society these days, the drinks you consume over Christmas are not dictated by the Bible anymore. No longer will we have to constantly drink red wine for twelve days straight. Thank God.
That being said, there is no reason you wouldn’t want to drink Scotch unless you are cleansing your palate with a martini of course.
But there is more meaning to the ‘spirit’ of Christmas than just a peaty single malt. Christmas is about being around the people you love and then drinking a peaty single malt. It’s been like that ever since Saint Nicholas gave Scotch to battle weary crusaders on Christmas day four thousands years ago.
So why not pick up the telephone and call one of your good friends, invite them round and indulge in some fine banter over a bottle of Scotland’s finest (I don’t mean Sean Connery).
So there you have it. Merry Christmas.
