Enjoy your Christmas, Albion fans - because tomorrow's Boxing Day!
Albion have a great recent record at The Valley in recent seasons.
And they might need a good omen or two if they are to enjoy some overdue Boxing Day cheer.
December 26 has been a savage comedown from the Christmas festivities for several years now.
Their best 'result' in recent years was arguably a late call-off at frosty Dagenham in 2010.
Albion did not play on December 26 last year and they hardly got out of second gear two years ago in a 3-0 defeat at Reading.
That pretty much summed up the way things were going for Micky Adams' men that year. By contrast, Albion were in good form under Dean Wilkins going into Boxing Day 2007, only to have their season thrown off course.
That was the day goalshy Millwall striker Gary Alexander suddenly scored a hat-trick in a 3-0 home victory.
Bas Savage said farewell to Albion after the game by throwing his shirt to the fans and George O'Callaghan effectively did likewise with his post-match outburst against chairman Dick Knight.
By those standards the 0-0 home draw with Leyton Orient in 2009 was a great result but it did not feel like it, especially when Andrew Crofts was sent off.
The best thing that happened that day was a late booking for Liam Dickinson. His subsequent suspension let Murray back into the team – and he scored four at Wycombe in the next match.
Nathan Jones helped Yeovil win 3-1 at Withdean on Boxing Day 2006.
So you have go to back to 2005 for that last Boxing Day win, when QPR were beaten 1-0 in the Championship at Withdean.
But even that was tarnished - by a broken leg and substantial ankle damage for Charlie Oatway which eventually ended his professional career.
So, while not wanting to spoil the festive mood, the track record on December 26 is not great.
But don't worry. There's plenty of Christmas Day left to enjoy yet!
