What Christmas means to Me by Jo Bolouri

There are several things which epitomise Christmas for me. Here are a few:

Checking the fridge.

It doesn’t matter that I’ve already eaten sixteen times before 2pm, I will still visit the fridge on a regular basis to see what else I can stuff into my expanding face.

Realising how terrible at wrapping I am.

Every year I try my hardest to produce lovely, perfectly wrapped gifts an every year I end up giving gifts that look like they’ve been through a terrible trauma.

Playing games with my family.

My family likes to play games after dinner. Anything stupid will do. Last year we stuck post-it notes to our head, this year we’re playing that game with the mouth guard which makes you  spit all over your loved ones.

Watching films I’ve seen a thousand times.

If I don’t sit through Die Hard, Elf, It’s a Wonderful Life and Indiana Jones at least once, well it just isn’t a proper Christmas.

Jo’s fun and festive new book The Most Wonderful Time of the Year is out now in paperback, and available to download for just 99p! Guaranteed to have you chuckling into the New Year.
