    All we will probably do is the usual, ie Christmas dinner, Doctor Who, tiramisu (which will hopefully work this year ), mince pies, some booze and turkey sandwiches. I would add time off to relax, but we've got that the rest of the year now, so it will be a bit weird.

    I'm really looking forward to it this year, I've not looked forward to it for years. It's only early November though, so we've got ages to wait.

    Jules (or is it Jools? I've forgotten he's been away for so long) would love this thread, he's really missing out.

    It's Jules now but he seems to prefer Facebook these days.

    I'm really excited about it this year too. I don't know why, it might be because I feel more organised and more settled in the house. Plus we have the new kitchen so i'm loving cooking again.

    We're going to do one last attempt at clearing out the attic this weekend and sorting out the back room, after that's done we'll have enough space for the tree etc so i'm excited about that.

    I'm going to subscribe to the Christmas Movies channel, but what are everyone's favourite Christmas films?

    What counts as a Christmas film? Is it films about Christmas or films that you tend to watch during the Christmas break.
