Dreaming of a green, gift-free Christmas | Brief letters | Life and style

My husband is dying of cancer. In the 40 years-plus of our marriage we have done so many lovely holiday journeys together, by road, by rail, by ferry (rarely by air). I’m trying to hold my life together. Then I read Joe Hammond’s final article (Weekend, 14 December) and the last line broke me up: “…preparing to travel again, but no longer together.”

I have just come in from the garden and noticed my cat had dug up some bulbs. They each bore a tiny green shoot. There they were, quietly waiting for spring. Did anyone else notice that the Green party had increased the percentage of its vote? Roll on spring.

Pete Brook’s request for a lie-ometer (Letters, 16 December) is spot on. Please consider the most effective way to do this. A daily list and highlighted lies in each article, perhaps? We desperately need the truth and evidence to call out those who have abandoned honesty.

If John Harrison (Letters, 16 December) is advocating that Labour adopt the selection methodology of Strictly Come Dancing, I have two words for him: Ed and Balls.

Surely an “i” has gone awol (Promises, promises: how Johnson’s government will run the country, 15 December)?

How can I have a green Christmas (The briefing, 16 December)? Spend time with people, not money on things.
