Star of Wonder
Well, it's that time of year again when families gather together and celebrate the coming of the "long-awaited special one" that brings joy and happiness to all. Yes, I'm talking about the new Star Wars film! Showing all around the world to rave reviews ...but not in China. Not yet, anyway. China only allows 34 foreign films to be shown in its cinemas every year and the allocation is up for 2015. So we have to wait until mid-January to see the blockbuster that the rest of the world is raving about. Faced with such uncertainty (we may be on holiday abroad by then) I downloaded a grainy but watchable copy online so I could see it before I'm spoilered to death. All being well, it will be my Christmas treat to myself today, a day which otherwise is decidedly un-Christmassy. Christmas Greetings to all you blog readers (thank you!) and May the Force be with you!
