"Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveller back to his own fireside and quiet home!" — Charles Dickens.

Corny quotes aside, Christmas is a special time of year.

It's when everyone can set aside their differences and reflect on the year that was, from its triumphs to its moments of despair.

With these sentiments in mind, the ZDNet.com.au team would like to invite all readers of the site to the first of what we hope will become our annual Christmas drinks night, to be held on Wednesday 9 December, kicking off from 6pm at Maloney's Hotel, which is located on the corner of Pitt and Goulburn Streets in the Sydney CBD.

It's just a casual get-together, but we anticipate there will be plenty to talk about! Some of the discussions that have gotten people fired up on the site over the past year have been the National Broadband Network (of course), whether Lotus Notes is on its last legs or not, and even whether phantom monitor pain is a real ailment or just a figment of our imagination.

If you're interested in coming, let us know in the talkback below this article, drop us an email at tips@zdnet.com.au, or just rock up on the night with any mates that want to come! Everyone is welcome. The ZDNet.com.au staff will be wearing name badges and we'll have signs up somewhere so you'll know where we are.

Unfortunately at this stage, attendees will need to pay for their own drinks (and any food). You can see some of the photos below from our previous drinks night in May. The complete photo gallery of the night is also online.
