I am going to have a good one this year (see thread passim), but given the choice, I would go to a friend's villa in Puerto Banus (without the partner) and indulge in the kind of Bacchanalian festivities which involve fantastic food, great presents, copious amounts of vintage wine, a rather ostentatious bong and several sexaganarian men.

Rather like 6 years ago in fact.

I'd like to spend it with all my closest family and my fiancee, in my mum and dad's house eating good food and drinking good booze. Which fortunately is exactly what I'll be doing.

I'd like to be with both my brothers and both my sisters. We managed it last year, but this year we're all over the place.

The number of people that want to be with families/partners is really shocking to me and makes me realise how actually abnormal my own feelings are. Oh dear.

That ain't necessarily so. My second sister is staying in Rotherham, having eschewed the chance to go to my little brother's place with my other brother and our father, as she wants to spend Christmas Day without them.

I think I'd go for the drink and drugs bender. Anything that wouldn't involve the family, and the inevitable arguments usually started by my sister*.

*Okay, me, but it's such fun winding her up, specially given that she demands silence during Emmerdale and EastEnders. Having five remote controls capable of working the TV is this year's plan, by the way. Especially as she won't shut up during Doctor Who.

WTF? You can make cheese at home?! I don't know whether I'm intrigued or appalled.

I'd do what I'm doing this year, and every year previous. My only changes would be to not have a stroke-riddled granddad, who might have to spend Christmas in hospital, to not have so many deadlines around the time we have off and to have the girlfriend round so we can do rude things at each other.

Other than that, my Christmas is spot on.

I tried making cheese at home once - that non melting Indian cheese - from a recipe in an Indian cookbook. I ended up with something about the size of three fingernails.
Takes a lot of milk.

Not to worry, lyra. In a couple of years, when I can afford vacations again, I'm going to try to spend Christmases on Caribbean islands, listening to carols played on steel drums while I drink lots of beverages that are served with little umbrellas in them.

Lying in bed reading until at least noon, I think. Then an hour or so emerging to help Gramsci Junior navigate the intricacies of the new Football Manager game his grandfather gave him. Scoffing Arancini and expensive cheeses most of the day while staying gently sloshed on Italian reds. A couple of hours of productive writing on a topic that has nothing to do with Canadian post-secondary education. Listening to music. Getting on a late night plane to somewhere reasonably exotic, hopefully with a really long stopover in London so I can watch a boxing day football match while the wife shops.

Bliss.

'Old on, that shouldn't be happening. The Scots should be working away on Boxing Day, ready to have 2nd of January off. What's going on?
