This Christmas – Just as you are…
Time to Watch – Pause at 2 mins 4 secs
There will be lots of films watched this Christmas time, so, joining in with the film theme, I have chosen one of my favourite clips and would love this to happen more often in real life.
I give you… one of my favourites
A very Happy Christmas to you all, from everyone at Naked Leader

A lot depends on what that person’s faults are.
Tourettes for instance. If my girlfriend had that, would i have to put up with it?
We can alll put up with so much but some things are just not possible to do that. with.
That’s quite an extreme example and not a very good one in the context of the article.
Tourettes is a very good example of someone’s annoyance. There has to be a limit to something you can tolerate, even at Christmas, in fact especially at Christmas.
The last think you want when you a re munching into your brussel sprouts and stuffing is to hear an earful of swearing at the dinner table. That would test the patience of anyone. You only get a certain amount of time off and it’s time to relax, regardless of your family being there.
I know from second hand experience. A friend of mine had the misfortune of taking home a girlfriend for Christmas after just four months of being together. She let rip apparently, giving his parents a mouthful just after grace. It wasn’t pleasant. needless to say they are no longer together.
Just relax, enjoy the day and forget about your troubles as a family. Make it work, whether or not someone tries to spoil it.
As David say, it could be the last time…thankfully so in some cases.
Easier said than done for some people.
Some families thrive on problems. let them get on with it in their way without imposing anything on them.
The time to be civil to your family is Christmas. It shouldn’t be a hardship.
And that film is excellent. It should inspire people to be nice to each other.
Great film but my comments stands. Sometimes ructions happen in families. It’s the way life is. Nothing can change it, least of all attitudes.
It’s too late now, there’s no going back, in laws have arrived early for Christmas!
I love my in laws and they bring me nice presents. I’m looking forward to seeing them and them me. It’s a civil arrangement,
What is the point of hostilities? Where does that get you.
Feeling guilty is the answer. And what’s the point of that?
