+ What is on the La­mont fam­ily Christ­mas Day menu this year? Brekky will be crois­sants and cof­fee. Lunch will be light as din­ner is al­ways a tra­di­tional Christ­mas din­ner, one of those where no one’s top but­tons are left done up at the end! We’ll have glazed ham, roast turkey, roast pota­toes and ku­mara, Mum’s fa­mous potato salad, home­made coleslaw and all the trim­mings and condi­ments you can imag­ine. Dessert is pavlova, Christ­mas pud­ding and cus­tard and my grand­mother’s spe­cial dessert (we call it “kush­cafluff”) that my sis­ter makes.

+ How will your fam­ily be spend­ing Christ­mas Day this year? Early morn­ing will in­volve open­ing and play­ing with presents, break­fast with fam­ily and open­ing of more presents, home for a nap if we are lucky, then off to my sis­ter’s place for the tra­di­tional din­ner (my sis­ter Michaela and I are tak­ing turns to host now that Mum has hes­i­tantly handed over the tra­di­tion, so it will be at our place next year).
