John Holliday: Fun, feasts and frivolity [H&H VIP]

For many people, Christmas occasions a well-earned holiday. Those who don’t visit the local football derby may well choose to attend that other great British tradition, the Boxing Day meet.

Most packs will have hundreds, if not thousands, of people attending.
