    Christmas in the South = great food, fresh air & outdoors.

    Christmas in the north = tescos, recycled farts, imprisoned by snow.

    Air doesn't get more ''fresh'' then when it is snowing.

    Recycled farts are probably the only reason you'd bother to put on twenty layers of clothing to go outside in the snow. Face it, apart from a few moments of quaint memories, snow sucks. You can have your mulled wine and denial of all that is good, while we run around in shorts with the ocean breeze and cold beers.

    Mulled wine. FMD. You'd love a cold beer if it wouldn't tip you into hypothermia. There is a reason that no one drinks this mulled wine **** outside of Christmas.

    I'll have my mulled wine rather than sweating into a turkey roast. Hot weather is certainly nice but it certainly isn't Christmas weather.

    Brits are so insecure they literally use ********* weather to look down on people.

    We draw the line at that too.

    Only downside of Christmas is the almost obligatory presence of relatives I don't even really like.

    I don't believe it is a ''British'' thing. In fact I wouldn't even say Britain is the best place to have the ''ideal Christmas setting'', Scandinavia, Greenland being the more obvious choices. Britain for instance is not even guaranteed snow. Often it just rains.

    Nothing like having a huge feed in town on Boxing Day, before wobbling back home, turning the cricket and a fan on, and cracking open a bottle of white.

    I've experienced a few wintry Christmases in England and Poland. I see the charm, but I much prefer the antipodean version.

    I'll have a full-on boner all the the way to Japan on the 27th if Kane gets a century.

    The ideal winter Christmas sounds almost perfect. But that needs buckets of snow (which have been cleared off the roads), bearable wind chill factors and general gaity. We get **** weather, ungritted roads and rain aimed direct at eyeballs (and wind designed to freeze ears off).

    I don't hear any of my family who have emigrated complain about missing Christmas in England. One of my aunties is back from LA this time, and no doubt she'll facetime her husband who'll be back from his morning surf. Honestly, I'd swap for a warm one.

    I've never been to the NH for Christmas but if anything that has probably just made me romanticise it a bit. I'd definitely pick it as it stands.
