Oor man in Ayrshire, Angus Shoor Caan, thinks that with no summer to speak of (again) it's only right that we should have Christmas all year round. Eh? Naw, no’ really – he’s sick to the back teeth of it already. And like the Bard he is, he’s composed a wee poem to that effect – in the shape of a Christmas tree (sort of). It’s called The twelve months of Christmas. Enjoy!
