So what are the good folk of 1FF planning to do for the festivities this year?

Traveling around the country seeing family?
Getting pissed by lunchtime?
Hosting and stressing in the kitchen cooking for others?
Avoiding the whole thing all together?
Playing peacemaker to prevent various family members killing each other?
Enjoying the awkward silence after aunt Ethel says something horrendously racist?
Going to Boxing day football?
Ditching the family and enjoying some peace and quiet perhaps?

All good options really.
As it happens I'll be ticking most of those boxes myself over the course of the week.

Being spoilt and pampered by the in-laws. Lovely.

I'll also be taking the father in law clay pigeon shooting on Wednesday so that should be good.

I dont really do the Christmas Day. I am all for Boxing Day. 20 or so of my family go over to my parents house, loads of food and booze. Nephews running around and then we have little presents worth £5 or less to open as well.

Normally go and watch QPR or Hampton play if they are at home and a 1pm kick off - no joy on that front this year.

They wouldn't have much to shoot otherwise!

Enjoying the food. And actually I was planning to hide from the family and study, don't know if it will be possible though...

If you're studying the art of hiding then you should be able to manage it.

Probably just spend it sitting contemplating how much I hate life, comfort-eating and thinking about how much work I have to do once it's all over and I'm back in the office on Wednesday.

Seriously, I've had 22 of them now, is there a point where Christmas becomes remotely enjoyable again...is it when you have kids? Cos fuck that, the cons still far outweigh the pros on that one.

Health check at some Shanghai clinic scheduled at 10am Christmas morning. :bdick: Rock and roll. Need it for a visa and it's the only day I can get in.

Should be home by midday though and then just gonna get drunk. Especially if they find owt terminal.

Shots on Boxing Day? Make yourself know to the fat bald bloke on the pitch with a fork in his hand and I'll buy you a pint.
Not 100% sure I'm going but will be sure to look for you if I do.

So Christmas eve we'll have a few people here for a takeaway and the christmas elves will bring the kiddies some pyjamas when they're having their bath.

Christmas morning in the house letting the kids open their presents and playing with what they got then head to the inlaws at lunch time and spend a few hours there.

Boxing day morning will be letting the kids do what they please before heading to my parents for lunch and spending a few hours with them so the kids can get all their stuff from my side of the family.

Day after boxing day is a I don't give a crap day and will probably laze as much as the kids let me haha :D

Her family Christmas Day, mine day after Boxing Day.
I'll be doing much of the cooking as always. And much of the drinking. If I'm unlucky someone will have got us tickets for the Reading game.

Ya bastards! Christmas is a time for compassion. We are expecting an advert any day now with a bloke on the moon looking through a telescope at Molineux in the 1950s...

On the 26th I will be doing bugger all. Could be difficult to tell, I know.

Seriously though, I do hope all of you here have a great Christmas and get what you want. If any of you are away from family, friends or loved ones over Christmas, I hope you get some contact time with them and get back soon.

We don't celebrate it but were both off this year for the first time so think we're going have a party on the day itself and then go to a rave on Boxing Day. We're working new year this time around.

Also I've told my siblings five years running I'm not buying them anything so don't buy me anything but they still insist. Pretty annoying as I just don't see the point.
