Whilst the Americans are soaking in a warm bath of gratitude, mash and turkey gravy I have been deciding who will make the cut for this year's B & P Christmas shindigs.
Red dresses with tartan scarves, kugelhopf, hot toddies and Fortnum &Mason's pie have all been given a nod and a wink.
But there are some sneaky little beacons of naffery looming on the horizon; Petticoat Tails, Yule logs complete with felt Bambis
and that lurid omnishambles of a truly retro Christmas; the Snowball cocktail, the downfall of every maiden aunt.
I wonder if I could keep it down now that I am an adult?
Anything retro putting in an appearance in your festive plans this year or have you put away childish things?
