You get to sit down together over a whole range of your favourite foods and catch up on the gossip.

Brunch starts earlier than lunch does, so you'll probably finish earlier, leaving you with time to get a few jobs done. If your brunch does stretch out to fill the day the chances are you've had a wonderful time and laid down some great memories. And that's much more important than the chores.

15. You can eat what you like

Typically brunch menus combine savory, sweet, meat and vegetation dishes.
