What’s making you happy? Christmas in September

Foraging for apples and a chat with a hairdresser made readers happy this week

“Picking an apple from a random overhanging branch on a laneway and adding it in slices to a curry. That’s foraging and delicious.” – David

“Getting my hair colour done while chatting to the colourist about her father who is battling the same type of brain cancer as myself” – Kevin

Saw this sign recently (pictured above) on D’Olier Street. I suggested to the driver that it was a tad premature, and he replied: “It’s never too early to wish somebody a happy Christmas!” Where else but Dublin! – Breege
