THE FESTIVE SEASON. A time of joy and goodwill to all… Oh, who are we kidding?

Christmas, New Year and the fallow period in between are ripe for misunderstandings, family tension and silly arguments. We’re here to gauge the temperature on the niggly rows of the season and set them all to rights.

Poll Results:

- A Yes, they must be down by 6 January (920)
B - No, I'll take mine down when I feel like it (479)
C - Can't we all just get along? (80)
