Day 278: Fairytale of New York, The Pogues

OK so I’m still prioritizing Christmas songs I enjoy over cheery content. This song from the Pogues is a classic although again doesn’t quite fit the traditional Christmas theme. However, in all honesty the song does touch on a Christmas reality that all social workers know about.

My first job was working in a drug and alcohol clinic in Sydney and it was well recognised that the busiest time of the year for the clinic was indeed Christmas time — such is the tragedy of the human condition where often family conflicts are at their worst at a time that is meant to be good will for all men.
