Family time tops as favourite Christmas ritual


For people in Britain, spending time with the family is the most important part of Christmas even more than receiving presents.

Just under half of those quizzed by toy makers Hasbro, chose being with relatives. Food was top priority for 23 percent, while presents was on the mind for 17 percent and time off from work for 12 percent.

And it was women, 53 per cent, more than men, who most look forward to family get togethers.

"Your family should never be a worry but we seem to have forgotten the art of spending time with each other," the Daily Express quoted Foye Pascoe, of Hasbro, as saying.

"Only one in seven of us will buy a real Christmas tree this year," she added.
