But if you’re an adult, with 9 children – 3 of whom have nut allergies, while the only boy is going through a vegetarian phase - then the festive period can look more like an ancient Egyptian slave camp than the fairytale images conjured up by seasonal advertising. 

Whatever your Christmas status is – lazy young adult, idiotic child or stressed mum – everyone sits down and watches TV at this time of year. Everything’s just so watchable. And if you haven’t got a TV, then don’t worry, you’re not reading this, because no one without a TV has a computer and the Internet, probably.

Next page: Doctor Who, obviously.
