    Unusual Christmas day plans?

    Well at the moment my plans for Christmas day are as follows.

    Morning - Unwrapping presents after being woken at some silly hour by our son (10 years old so still excited about Christmas).

    Early to Mid morning - My side of the family arrive, unwrap presents etc.

    Midday - My partner and son go to her side of the family for lunch and I will be going out to play on my Waveski for the afternoon (will keep fingers crossed for some surf).

    Evening - Chill after a good day out on the surf content at avoiding the mother in law

    So is it just me who does daft things on Christmas day or are there others equally oddball.

    We've got Christmas to ourselves this year for the first time in ages. The kids have finally got to an age where getting up on Christmas morning will be at a respectable time.

    We'll have brunch after unwrapping the presents and then go out for a walk/bike ride before Christmas mid-afternoon lunch.

    In-laws boxing day. Own Mum coming for New Year. Visit to aged Aunt & Uncle Jan 2nd.

    We don't really celebrate Christmas (long story - it goes back about 3000 years).

    We're having an anti-xmas day in January though. We call it our Stuff Christmas Day. We usually have it in December but some family members can't make it until then.

    I have the joys of going to the Monster In Laws in Grimsby for Xmas, for once I will be wanting to be called in to work!!!

    The wife will be waking the kids up to open the presents at stupid o'clock lol

    Then its eat as much choclate before breakfast competition. Then im sure the sprouts will be put on to boil for few hours!

    After we have munched through the turkey farm for lunch, ill be forced to watch the queens speach.

    Of cousre i have got boxing day to look forward with the father in law whihch will involve being dragged to his local and off to watch the mariners at home.

    Is there a James Bond on this year?
