19 Things All British People Do In That Bit Between Boxing Day And New Year
It's The Festive Gooch.
Work out how many days it is til next Christmas.
Try to decide what this time of year is called.
It's a mystery.
Get ridiculously over-excited about World’s Strongest Man being on telly and shout for all your family to come watch it.
Be slightly unsure whether it’s still OK to listen to Christmas songs.
Feel a little bit heartbroken when you discover the special Christmas radio station has been taken off air.
Get a frisson of excitement when you check the Radio Times and see that Homes Under the Hammer and Doctors have been replaced by back-to-back movies.
Be like, “Free Willy 3, rubbish, I’m not watching this.”
Keep having to swap one pair of batteries between the TV remote and the drone someone got for Christmas.
Wonder whether it's still OK to wear your pyjamas all day or if it's a bit disgusting now.
Get continued enjoyment from drinking booze before noon.
Debate whether or not the turkey scraps are still safe to eat.
Contemplate tackling the sad dregs of the selection box.
Get a massive crick in your neck from spending basically 120 hours lying on the sofa.
Lose all sense of time and place.
Have a massive argument with your family over a board game.
Have another fight with your family for no reason except that you’re all extremely claustrophobic, restless, bloated, hungover, and full of sugar.
Then remember this is the life you always dreamed of and wanted.
But mostly just savour these last precious moments of feasting and slobbing until 2017 comes along and ruins everything.
