Hello! Merry Christmas from the 7 Reasons team. We’ve been having a whale of a time here today, we slept fitfully and expectantly and this morning we gathered around the 7 Reasons tree to unwrap our presents:
Now that the presents are unwrapped and we’ve tidied the floor up and fed the penguin, it’s time for us to take off for a while, to resume our real lives for a week or two; so that we can spend time with our friends and families, and experience events without thinking, “I can probably get a 7 Reasons post out of that“. Because our first thought on falling into a hole is invariably, “7 Reasons Not to Fall Into a Hole!”, rather than the more conventional, “Fuck! My arm hurts, I hope no one saw me. Have I ripped my trousers?“
We won’t be posting anything new until the 6th of January but, rest assured, we’ll probably be creating things for next year while we’re away. We’ll also – inspired by Christmas television, in which the repeats are often more popular than new programming – be tweeting the links to some of our favourite posts during the holidays. Feel free to read or re-read them and to wander around the site unsupervised while we’re away, we’re very trusting.
We’d like to wish all the readers, guest writers and friends of 7 Reasons a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year*, and we’d like to thank everyone for their continued help and support. We couldn’t keep this up without you,
Marc and Jon.
*And a happy Sausage Day!
