Stud­ies show the UK con­sumes an av­er­age of 300 mil­lion mince pies ev­ery Christ­mas

YOURS (UK) - - The View From Yours -

If you’re curl­ing up with a book this fes­tive sea­son then the chances are it could well be a thriller. Ap­par­ently, for the first time, crime thrillers are now the na­tion’s favourite book genre. Agatha Christie would be de­lighted! New re­search has re­vealed that many Bri­tons can’t make it through din­ner at home with­out check­ing their phone.

Ac­cord­ing to a YouGov re­port, 55 per cent said they kept their mo­biles on the din­ner ta­ble at home to check for mes­sages or take calls and 53 per cent while din­ing out!

Wouldn’t it be amaz­ing if, for the Christ­mas Day din­ner, mo­biles were turned off and re­moved from the ta­ble? ■
