There's food and schmoozing, which is basically all you ever need.

16. If we opt to stay in town over the festive period, we end up celebrating Christmas Eve by going to a super-club with 2,000 other Jews.

17. And for Christmas lunch, we eat a kosher turkey.

Which is basically like a normal turkey, but twice the price.

19. And best of all: Because Christmas falls on a Friday this year, we'll have a fantastic dinner.
