Hi all,

Take a moment to look forward to your impending long weekend of seasonal 
festivities with close family, distant relatives, and the 
not-quite-distant-enough ones. Think of the present opening, the joy of 
seeing another pair of socks, the screams of rage that inform you that 
Ben 10 was last years hot thing and a completely inappropriate present 
to have given this year. Just think about the meal of curiously burned 
stuffing inside a not-quite-cooked turkey which you will then smother 
with cranberry jam for no apparent culinary purpose. Spare a moment to 
consider the bowl of sprouts and the fun of watching adults attempting 
to fool children into thinking they are edible. Perhaps after the meal 
someone will suggest that you all play a board game together, won’t that 
be fun! The best you can hope for is that they will all be asleep before 
the Dr Who Christmas special starts.

If these thoughts of Christmas have left you in need of a stiff drink, 
don’t worry you are not alone, and we have a plan. The Ubuntu UK 
Christmas event will be held *tonight*, December 21st from 7PM at The 
Hub Islington http://islington.the-hub.net/public/

Hub Islington is just a 2 minute walk from Angel tube station (Northern 

Address: Hub Islington, Candid Arts Trust, 5 Torrens Street, London, 

It is through a dark little door on the right at the end of Torrens 
Street and up loads of stairs, I will put a sign on the door.

You can register your attendance here http://ubunt.eu/c2 (launchpad 
account required - or just turn up). We would invite you to bring some 
Christmas and/or Ubuntu themed nibbles and optionally a bottle of 
something to ward off the cold (there will be a £5 collection on the 
door to pay for the room hire). Take an evening out to relax with 
friends and steel yourself for what is to come.

No Sprouts
