Play day

This is the day to play.

The day to remember what playing is. And does.

If you’re not reading this you have the right idea.

If you’ve shut the tv off you’ll go from bored to liberated inside 12 minutes.

This is the day Toystory and Christopher Robin make sense. Maybe the only day.

If you have no one to play with, pick up a stick and find the nearest dog.

If it’s raining go outside and get wet and make leaves run down the roadside.

Any boardgame except Monopoly.

No card game with stakes.

The closest Jesus would want with this or any Christmas is to see us as carefree as the lilies of the field.

All they do is arc to the sun all day.

Children who play have a world to teach.

Playing reinvents rules in every fresh gesture.

Who knows, maybe we’ll remember the gesture afresh after the world starts again.

Go play.

    And while you are playing, remember the person who has cleaned and tidied the house for visitors, done all the shopping, wrapped the gifts, cooked ahead, and on the day, set the table, served the meal/meals, and washed up afterwards. Make sure they get their playtime too.

    And if you’re Jacinda, perhaps express a bit of milk and hunker down with a book:
    Perhaps one of Jo Brand’s efforts. Born Lippy maybe
