It's that time of year again milled wine made by me  ;D mince pies and all that good stuff with Santa hats  :)

Xmas day falls on a Sunday this year so children are rejoicing everywhere and we are wondering whether a weekend off  or a change of day is best.

Rather than decide I'll open the decision up to you guys and girls

I would think you could be struggling for numbers on 24th and 26th.
45%, Cheated not defeated.

Depends how far away it is, busy time of year for most of us.

I voted for the 18th as it'd be nice to just chill on the xmas weekend but I know from experience some can't wait to escape the madness on Boxing Day  ;D

I generally got fishing gear 'from santa' as a young G and Boxing Day was the first chance to go use it apart from when there was a big freeze lol  :(

Boxing day is a dodgy time of year ....... people have a glass or 3 of vino or whatever get up early next morning and drive ! with the lowered drink drive limit there'd be a risk of getting done travelling to a dig  :( better being safe and not risking it.

Doesn't matter to me though as I wouldn't make it on boxing day if that's what the majority wanted  ;) just saying to others be extra careful should it be a boxing day event  ;)

Good sensible words there don't get caught out especially with the new lower blood alcohol limit some still don't know about bizarrely
