1. How many of your relatives have been around for Christmas?
4-6 relatives
6-8 relatives

8-10 relatives
I've lost count
2. Pick a topic you have argued with someone about.
Someone cheating during Monopoly. They wouldn't go down without a fight.
There was a small misunderstanding about the ownership of the TV remote, but it was resolved quickly!

A family member's terrible opinion on a certain current event. You just had to let them know they were wrong.
A sizeable squabble over who had to do the washing up. You're all laughing at it now though.
3. It's 2pm on St Stephen's Day. What are you doing?
Visiting. Dear god, help me.
Trying to find the good ones in the half-empty tin of Roses.

Preparing a lovely lunch of leftovers. Yum!
Begrudgingly out on a walk, after being ordered to get up and dressed.
4. Have you been admonished for choosing to spend some time with friends instead of family yet?
5. Pick an annoying Christmas song.

7. Have you spent a significant amount of your time at home dealing with a hangover?

Escape? That's an awful way of putting it!
Not for another week at least. Things are looking bleak.

Three days' time, thank GOD.

You'll survive...just about.
The tension is there. Be careful that no one quibbles over an ill-gotten Trivial Pursuit pie, or the whole structure will come crashing down.

It's all-out war.
