    Doesn't mean we can't talk about it though, does it duck?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Im afraid you're not allowed to talk about it. JimV has told me to tell you all.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    If I had the command direct from JimV I would obey obviouslly, wouldn't want to upset the gods.

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    ooh, with a present for me once I've sat on his knee?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I'm sure he'd let you empty his sack if you sat on his knee
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Santa has a big sack so im sure there is plenty to go around.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    For breakfast probably toast or cereal, pig out on chocolate during the day then for tea it's either chicken or lamb, veg, roast potatoes, plenty of mint jelly :yum: and trifle for after and even more chocolate.

    i really shouldnt read this thread as it makes me SO hungry...arghhh
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Christmas Day is pretty much the only day of the day when I drink alcohol in the AM. So here goes :-)

    Breakfast at 10AM - smoked salmon on homemade bread, Philadelphia cheese (optional), and bucks fizz to drink.

    Presents opening at 11AM

    Aperitifs at noon, usually a G&T (or 2!) for me. Oh and make that a double shot of Bombay Sapphire while you're at it pretty please.

    Dinner at 2PM - traditional turkey roast followed by traditional Christmas pudding. Lots of red wine consumption during the main course and pudding wine during the pudding. Finish off with mince pies with brandy butter, and a shot of my own choice. I normally choose Cointreau.

    Then leftover turkey on Boxing Day with bubble n squeak. And the drinking continues.

    The answer for me is, simply too much :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    i love christmas :d

    i dont normally have breakfast. but like my family have a little buffet thing with party food at 11.30 on christmas eve.
    then turkey, sausges wrapped in bacon, roast potatoes, roast parsnips, carrots and loads and loads of gravy. oh and gammon - a little of each meat! and the forced down sprouts!
    Tiffin for afters but quite a while after as i cant stuff in that much all at once! oh and chocolate whenever really :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    breakfast- full english.

    lunch- turkey with all the trimmings

    snacks- anything ranging from cookies and crisps, to quality street chocolates (i have a huge tin of them every year!)

    tea- what ever is lying around hah. usually a picky type meal
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    B'fast - normally i try to make something like muffins or pain a chocolate - this year i'm planning on cinnamon rolls.

    Snacks - obv any chocolate in my stocking though i think i'm now too old for stockings - last year i put chocolates in my daughters stocking which as she was unf too young I had to eat instead - not sure i will get away with that this year.

    Then sherry and crisps before lunch.

    Then some kind of starter - usually melon or pate, followed by turkey, roast potatoes, stuffing , sausages, bacon, vegetables including brussel sprouts with cranberry jelly and lots and lots of gravy. All obviously accompained by lots of wine. Followed by some kind of non christmas pudding - usually go for a chocolate christmas pudding - with brandy butter, brandy cream and all of that other stuff (everyone else has mice pies and christmas pudding) this is accompanied by pudding wine and usually the queens speach.

    Then more chocolates and coffee/tea whilst opening presents - watching films etc - this goes on for hours.

    Then my favourite part of the day christmas tea which includes cold turkey, ham, pickled onions, mango chutney, branston pickle, cheese, bread, bisuits, salad - including beatroot - this part is accompanied by lots of tea. Followed by Christmas Cake and yule log with champagne.

    Then we get presents from the chrisstmas tree which are usually chocolate so we eat those and probably drink some more wine along with lots of games like charades.

    This year unf i'm going to my in laws and they don't do a proper big eat on a christmas day (as they are all unfeasably skinny) - and whats worse - they don't do christmas day tea!!! Just a bit of cake - thankfully i think we will have to leave early so i can prepare my own yummy tea at home
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Christmas is my favorite time! On christmas eve we have lots of snacks, chips, dip, cocktail sandwiches, mini sausages, cookies, bars, more cookies

    Then we have a big meal on christmas day around lunch time with stuffing, turkey, sweet potatos with pecans and marshmellows, vegis, breads, cranberries, pie.

    And then we eat the leftovers for dinner... and the next few days :p

    And the cookies and snacks are always flowing.
