Let's raise a toast at this very relaxed, very British afterglow of the Christmas holiday. Bring your stories and any trailing gifts to share.

What could make these date change? As British Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan said, “Events, my boy, events!” We anticipate opportunities will come up, and will look to make the most of them. 
 
What to wear? Dress appropriate to the weather, certainly. A sportcoat for the winter, spring and fall meetings will mark you as a man of distinction and style. Wear a black suit for Grand Lodge, Emulation Degree performances or other big events. At the Royal Ascot, men and women dress “to the 9s,” as they say.
