    Do many people still have greasy English breakfasts on Christmas day?

    Ahhh well .. I'm the classic fussy eater , I only eat a very small selection of things ... all English as well I just can't stomach anything new or strange or spicy etc

    I had a couple of bites of black pudding ( without knowing what's in it !) and I hated the taste , smell and texture... all the family love it .. my son is one of the minority who even eats the skin !

    Don't tempt me! I had a friend who came up from London a few years ago and we had onion rings with chips. I hope that when my online food shopping comes tomorrow I can eat more traditionally. I have had the turkey dinner today, so I think that it will be chicken on Christmas Day itself,
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    Everyone shopped for their Chrissie presents yet or are you like me a last minute shopper?

    I usually do the Christmas cards rather than the presents. Less bulky.

    As I haven't got the patience or the manpower of stuffing a bird and putting it in the oven, I usually have one of those microwave meals instead - and it cooks in a lot less time as well. When the Queen is on, I just pop it in the microwave and it is usually done by the time she has finished.

    I think that I have got some Cranberry Sauce in the fridge from last year, or the year before.
