We are creatures of habit and we love our little Christmas traditions, however crazy or silly they may seem. How many of these do you and your loved ones partake in?
Take regular Quality Street breaks
Wake up. Gold one. Open presents. Pink one. Finish breakfast. Purple one. Throughout cooking lunch. Green ones. Wine break. Orange ones. After lunch. Whichever ones are left. The result? Waking up on the sofa in front of a Christmas classic, covered in Quality Street wrappers.
If you can’t mull it, should you really be drinking it? Nothing gets us in the festive spirit more than cinnamon sticks in cider and juicy oranges in mulled wine. Spice up your life!
Dance awkwardly at the Christmas Party
Did you even go to your Christmas party if you didn’t make a total fool of yourself, say something inappropriate to your boss and show off some pretty snazzy dance moves?
Drink Champagne at 10am
Alongside a cup of tea whilst the kids are ripping open their stockings, to cool you down whilst roasting the potatoes, champagne is the perfect accompaniment to every Christmas situation – why not just brush your teeth with it whilst you’re at it?
Use the pub as an excuse not to attend weird family reunions
We don’t know what it is about the festive season that brings all the weird aunts and uncles out of the woodwork, but there are far too many awkward family reunions worming their way into the diaries for our liking. Take shelter at the pub with your friends, they won’t find you here!
Listen to Michael Bublé until it hurts your ears
Does he literally get let out of his cage for the entirety of December then get locked back in the second New Year’s Day rolls around?
Wear a fancy outfit for one hour then change back into pyjamas
Our sparkly Christmas Day outfits don’t normally last much longer than lunch…By the time we’ve all collapsed on the sofa, stuffed with turkey and covered gravy, we’ve normally changed into our jammies and popped on our slippers.
Whatever your little festive ritual, we wish you a merry, merry Christmas from Crantock and look forward to excusing you from weird family reunions!!
