Black Eye Friday

Black Eye Friday? I’d never heard of it before, but it seems the last Friday before Christmas in the UK is fast becoming a rather unpleasant experience, marked with excessive drinking and the subsequent injuries, illness, assault and fights that go with it as offices hold parties, people get bonuses and there’s a headlong, lemming-like rush to ‘have a great time’. Because it’s Christmas. It all seems ludicrously feral to me, as photos via the link show.

What is appalling about it is that the media, and the population in general, sometimes have this idea that there is something wrong with naturism, that taking our clothes off is somehow sordid. Yet naturists conduct themselves with dignity and restraint. We can have a drink, we can have a good time, but we never become ridiculously and hideously obnoxious in our efforts to quietly pursue a wholesome lifestyle.

The photos above are a sad indictment of British drinking culture, and British culture in general. It’s shameful that people feel the need to behave in such a manner. Meanwhile, Santa hats and naturism can be put together in a refined, dignified, wholesome manner.
