Let them know it’s Christmas time

Today I gave money to Crisis at Christmas.

I grew up in Africa in the 1970s-80s (parent’s job) and I have consequently – as an adult – harboured mixed feelings about the concept of ‘charity beginning at home’ when the UK is so incomparably wealthy compared with the developing world.

Anyway; this song of course recalls Band Aid and the year 1984, fuelling my unquenchable (but questionable) nostalgia for the 1980s.
