What do people normally do on Boxing day?Almost exclusively worked it for the past 10 years and my friends and family never really bothered with it before then. I'll watch the f**tball obviously...

Same as Christmas Day - eat, drink, play board games, etc. With regard to f***y, I used to go home and away but never on Boxing Day. I’d much rather spend time with my family. I’d check Ceefax for scores and results but that’s about it. My Dad still goes on Boxing Day if we’re playing at home. Used to annoy my Mum but she came to accept it many, many years ago.

We pretty much do our own thing during the day, a bit of exercise, footy and films, maybe, followed by arguably the best meal of the holiday, turkey and leftovers casserole and my dad’s sherry trifle.

 

Fingers crossed for you finding work again soon

I go to the pub and drink myself into oblivion, it's great.

Boxing Day was always a morning tidy up after the Christmas Day stuff. Then cold meat, mash, and peas for lunch. These days I just watch the game on TV and have a few beers. Boxing Day is when I miss being a match goer the most.

Yeah likewise. I like not working, eating loads, and it being socially acceptable to drink at any hour of the day.

 

The commercial stuff I do find tedious at best. Spent 2 euros on my missus this year.

You little Rockerfeller you.

Had a breakfast and a pint to prepare myself for the shops. 

 

Need to get my niece a present, a haircut and some alcohol for tomorrow evening. 

 

Then I’m heading home and not going out again.

Bit weird to get her a haircut for Christmas. Still, I hope she likes the booze.

I love Christmas. Just not having the corporate version of “event” adverts, Christmas jumpers and lights and decorations up in November.

What, again?

 

She got one for her birthday, I hope she isn't expecting another one.

So we're all set for tomorrow, fucking the family off(messin) and spending the day serving and talking and hopefully, having a laugh of sorts, with the homeless and those living on the poverty line. 

As a request(all good spirited) I was asked to make the trifle, they had everything else other than a trifle, so I made one, a proper one - bar the custard, which sadly is from powder, the rest, is mine, bar growing it.  Did some homemade fudge as well.

 

No beans, so can't be all bad for you non-beanist bastards.

 

Merry Christmas you festive fuckers

Fucking love Christmas, especially as the boys are still young enough to enjoy it (despite both of them now knowing who brings their presents). The turkey is defrosting, there's a bottle of champagne chilling for the smoked salmon breakfast and I've bought a nice port to go with the cheeses after dinner. I've got the mother in law staying, which is great because we get on really well and she's great with the boys.  Planning to do fuck all but drink, watch the footy, play with the kids and nap in my Christmas jumper. Cheers everyone!

Had work today and working Thursday and Friday. First time I've worked over christmas since I was in the Navy. On a plus note i'm meeting my Dad for a christmas pint tomorrow then having christmas dinner at my maa's, first time i'll have spent xmas day with them in about 12 years and all. I love christmas. Did get depressed walking through town earlier though, so many homeless people. Breaks my heart.

Besides the footy I usually spend the day watching the King George meeting at Kempton on TV (although I could actually walk there from my house). Had a bit of luck picking the winner of the big race the past few years but never put more than a fiver on it.

Had our Christmas party with the lads and other half’s on Friday. Drank each other into oblivion. Had to split my two mates up after one of them said ‘Hazard’ by Richard Marx was shit after the other had started playing it at 4am. Christmas is great fun.

I'm at that threshold now where if I stop drinking I'll be reasonably fine getting up with the kids at 5am but a few more bevvies wouldn't go amiss.

 

I'll get up either way but it'll be hard going with the second option.

Well

Everyone at work left early. I'm in work now. Xbox on, there may or may not be a hip flask in my bag, full of park royal that goes splendidly in a orange and ginger tea. 

 

 

 

Actually there definitely is not a hip flask if anyone is reading

The reindeer have chowed down on the carrot and Father Christmas has done in three quarters of the mince pie. Now he’s just hanging around with a whiskey before filling the sack, the lazy fucker.
