Publisher's Summary

Have Yourself a Very British Christmas is a 12-stage sleigh ride through the best, worst, strangest and funniest aspects of the Christmas holiday, with cultural icons saluted, national habits dissected and personal reminiscences from those who've eaten all the mince pies and lived to tell the tale.

The essential Christmas stocking filler for every Brit who's ever found themselves on a deflating airbed wedged up against the washing machine in their parents' spare room come Christmas Eve and wondering why this Christmas - just like every year - doesn't look like the ones on the telly.

I really need Christmas in July right now.

I usually wait for November 1st to start listening to this during what I consider The Holiday Season (Nov 1 - Jan 8), but this American needs this now.
