We open with more of a look back that usual. I’d spotted that a post from 2013 was becoming popular, so posted it on Facebook in case anyone missed it the first time round. So this bilingual post by AurĂ©lien Azam from 2013 became our most popular Facebook post in 2015 with 6200 views. It’s pencilled into the schedule to return in 2017.

If you’re not celebrating Christmas today then tomorrow you can look at June and celebrate that it’s Friday.
