Something to consider for next year. Amidst the orgy of presents and wrapping flying around the living room after lunch, adegirl2's partner told us about one of his sisters. She's married into a family with an inviolable Xmas tradition. The whole family is obliged to front up at 8am for a shared breakfast. I had visions of pancakes, mince pies, eggnog, fresh squeezed juices or a 'full English'. But no. Cocopops!
