How Scottish Stars Spend Christmas
We’ve all brought the bells in with Jackie Bird, but here’s how she spends Christmas....
My share brothera room...

Then we would open the door and there would be a plethora of presents. We would have a chair each. And that’s something that hasn’t changed – he does that with his kids and so do I. One year we got the best present ever – Bruce the Alsation puppy. He was hiding under the couch refusing to play ball after they had tried to put a bow on him. My worst present was roller skates, because it snowed that year. I tend to buy a few presents in October and think ‘this is the year I’m super organised’. By December I’ve either lost them or had second thoughts and then I have a mad dash to the shops and spend too much. I think it should be mandatory that you have a bottle of wine whilst wrapping presents. I pour a glass of wine and put on Michael Bublé. It’s funny, I start off a really good wrapper but by the end of the bottle of wine it’s not quite so delicate! On Christmas Eve my parents come round and we have a buffet dinner.
Then on Christmas Day I love to wrap up some bacon sandwiches in tinfoil and we go for a walk in the country with a glass of champagne. My husband does the cooking because I’m a terrible cook – I’m the
labourer. We normally have turkey with all the trimmings and my mum’s homemade bread sauce. There’s normally about 14 of us. After which all our neighbours and friends come round and we we have our annual Christmas quiz which I have spent months preparing.
