Here, where Christmas seems to be about teaching children to be greedy it is nice to occasionally see what is perhaps the true spirit of Christmas. My daughter and her son have been visiting me here in Brisbane. A few days ago they took a bus ride into town to meet an old friend. On the return journey, the bus driver wore a Santa suit and handed out a lollipop to each of his passengers. This, I assume, was his own initiative. What a delightful man he must be. For him driving a bus would never be a mundane job.
