Of course, we couldn’t mention this without referring to Christmas, so we will leave you with a quote from ‘Love’s Labour Lost’ written in the 1590’s by the main man himself on the merry season:-
“At Christmas I no more desire a rose
Than wish a snow in May’s new-fangled shows,
But like of each thing that in season grows”
