There’s just a few days now until the big boned bearded man in red comes down the chimney and drops off his presents. Yes, it’ll be officially time to find out whether you’re on Santa’s nice list or naughty list after the year we’ve just had.

But Christmas means lots of other things too. It means eating turkey and basting it with enough butter to drown a small country to keep it moist. It means dealing with mince pies, something so utterly delicious and moreish that no one wants to see one again in January for a lifetime.

And it also means lots of stuff running on different times or schedules. But not here at Amateur’s House. Over the Christmas and New Year period, the vast majority of columns and such will run exactly as they normally do. The only differences will be the Six On Saturday column is away until New Year, and the Saturday Recap will be on Friday for two weeks.

Other than that, keep tucking into your boxes of Roses as normal. Enjoy!
