Publisher's Summary

Have Yourself a Very British Christmas is a 12-stage sleigh ride through the best, worst, strangest and funniest aspects of the Christmas holiday, with cultural icons saluted, national habits dissected and personal reminiscences from those who've eaten all the mince pies and lived to tell the tale.
The essential Christmas stocking filler for every Brit who's ever found themselves on a deflating airbed wedged up against the washing machine in their parents' spare room come Christmas Eve and wondering why this Christmas - just like every year - doesn't look like the ones on the telly.

I loved this book and I recommend reading it. It made me laugh out loud a whole bunch of times. It has chapters on the history of Chrimbo-ness, lots of British traditions as well as funny stories from actual people. I think I’ll read it every year in late November to get me in the Christmas spirit. Thank you Rhodri!
