Christmas Day starts with a bloody mary even though I usually don't want one. My partner is Scottish so we always have one of his lovely thick woolly socks each crammed with sweets, and open our big presents after dinner to keep the excitement going all day.
My sisters and I have our annual weekend away in Nov/ Dec as it's cheaper to book a cottage out of season, but we always have an evening of singing carols very badly with mulled wine to make up for the bad weather.
I love the idea of everyone in the family shaking the turkey's leg - ha ha.
Board games are for New Year's Eve. And we pull crackers again on New Year's Day.
