What is your favourite family Christmas tradition? A round of Baileys coffees after my mother’s loaded sherry trifle around a roaring fire. We normally place small bets on things like who will fall asleep first, Mammy or Daddy.
What is your favourite friend Christmas tradition? I’ve religiously gone to Jiffy, Neil and Anithas “The Sokays” house every Christmas Eve after the pub. We’ll
normally stay up late drinking, with their parents Jai and Margaret busting some moves in the kitchen.
Any memorable Christmas food fails? One year, we were invited to my sister Paula’s house, but there was a power cut so the turkey was undercooked. So we changed plan and went to my sister Mary’s and her turkey was cremated. My mother found the whole thing hilarious.
What is your favourite part of Christmas dinner? My mother's prawn salad. The turkey with bread sauce and cranberry sauce combo. We always have a delicious trifle too and the best pavalova known to man. I pavalove it.
