Ugly Grace

Picture the scene; A family attired in Christmas jumpers, rosy-cheeked, gathered round an open fire after a bracing country walk. There’s a huge home cooked dinner on the table, a twinkly Christmas tree shimmering merrily in the corner, happy chatter, hearts all aglow.

If Facebook is to be believed, this was the scene for many families this Christmas.  And yet behind those happy selfie snaps, how much of it was a true reflection of their real lives?  How many families were struggling with resentment or ill-health or worries about the future?   How many paused from their squabbling just long enough to put a smiley picture on Twitter?

If you’ve looked at someone else’s Facebook, Instagram or Twitter this year and thought, why isn’t my Christmas like that? Why don’t I have as many friends?  Why isn’t my family happy...chances are, you’ve been the victim of a Facebook mugging.
