It doesn’t matter how old you are, Christmas involves some unbreakable traditions.
And the main one is eating chocolate any time, any where, any how.
In fact, according to a recent poll by Ladbrokes Casino, having chocolate for breakfast is the UK’s favourite thing about the festive holidays.
More than 2,000 Brits were asked what they loved best about Chrimbo and researchers found that we love three things above all else: breakfast chocolate, Christmas coffee cups and time off work.
One in 20 also said their favourite thing was that Christmas is ‘an excuse for a kiss under the mistletoe’, while 10% voted for post-Christmas dinner naps and the fact that it’s the one time of the year that you don’t feel guilty about gaining weight.
Food-wise, Boxing Day scraps are more popular than Christmas Eve buffets or Christmas Day breakfasts.
‘The nation has voted on what the best things about Christmas are and the list reveals we look forward to Boxing Day leftovers more than Christmas Eve buffets or Christmas day breakfast,’ says Kaidi Kuusk from Ladbrokes Casino.
‘Whether you agree with our list or not, it’s clear the nation has an opinion on what the best things about Christmas are.’
The poll also found that Home Alone is our favourite festive film (24%), closely followed by It’s a Wonderful Life (21%) and Miracle on 34th Street (18%).
Oh, and when it comes to football, Cardiff is the Uk city most dedicated to Christmas football fixtures.
The five cities most obsessed with Boxing Day football are:
- Cardiff (20%)
- Liverpool (20%)
- Nottingham (13%)
- Leeds (11%)
- Birmingham (10%)
‘Home Alone’s an all-time classic so it’s no surprise to see it top the list as the nation’s favourite Christmas film,’ Kaidi continues.
‘It looks safe to say Cardiffians and Liverpudlians can’t wait to stop watching the likes of Mrs Brown’s Boys and get stuck into the Boxing Day fixture list.’
So, chocolate coins for brek it is.
