Some ways indeed are very odd
By which we hail the birth of God.

May I wish all Wiganworlders at home and around the World A Very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year. Thanks are due to Brian,Ron and all the volunteers and contributors who make Wigan World what it is . The same message as last year,and the year before but no less heartfelt for that !


Comment by Mick on 25th December 2017 at 04:28
A lot of people will be going to church today, but not me because the church to me is a hospital for sinners and not a club for saints.


Comment by Garry on 25th December 2017 at 08:28
Merry Christmas to Brian and the team, and to everyone who make WW a great site. The Sherry's on me!


Comment by Howard P on 25th December 2017 at 08:31
It's Christmas day!
I suspect now is a good time to wish all my friends on Wigan World a very merry Christmas.


Comment by Alan on 25th December 2017 at 08:39
I lift up my head
turn over and go
back to sleep.
Alan.
I wish all on Wigan World a happy xmas and may god be with you all.

No problem irene and a mince pie if you like them next to my coal fire.
all the best you x.


Comment by Pat McC on 25th December 2017 at 10:41
Never a truer word spoken Mick. Itís surely the very reason we go to church, because we are sinners. Itís certainly not a club for saints, otherwise the churches in this country would be emptier than they sadly already are.

Nadolig Llawen to all the lovely people on Wigan World and best wishes for 2018. Looking forward to lots more stunning photographs.


Comment by Maurice on 25th December 2017 at 11:27
All the very best everyone,and thanks Brian for what you do.


Comment by Gary Leece on 25th December 2017 at 11:36
Best wishes everyone from someone who still associates Christmas with Uncle Joe's Mint Balls!

Mick -agree; the church isn't a club of perfection, just a field hospital and God knows we need a few of those at present


Comment by Maureen on 25th December 2017 at 12:13

Already celebrated THE important winters day, 21st, winter solstice, the beginning of the rise of the life giver back to summer glory.
Must thank all the contributors to P-A-D, keeps us ex-pats in touch with the motherland.
The best of December to all on WW and a prosperous Newyear.

Every day of every year, I check the PAD, and just smile. Mostly I do that whilst in Spain, and the photo's remind me of Wigan's industrial heritage, our pioneering work in creating the industrial revolution. People like John Clarke who owned the Orrell Collieries, and had a steam driven railway from Winstanley to Crooke 16 years before Stevenson introduced his Rocket to the world. Clarke had Orrell Mount built as his home. His engineer who designed part of the locomotive, had built what is now the home of Wish fm.

Veronica, I have passed your wishes on to Carol, and I do likewise to all the motley crew who enjoy the banter and camaradery of this forum.

A merry Christmas to you all.


Comment by Ellen on 26th December 2017 at 00:46
As above; it goes without saying, but we are indeed blessed because we have Wigan World to keep us solidly Wiganers!!

...and to all a good night!
