MILLIONS of Britons secretly enjoy Christmas and are actively looking forward to it.You actually like this despite calling him an ‘old perv’
Respondents to an anonymous survey by the Institute for Studies confirmed they would enjoy Christmas despite outward cynicism about the festive season.
Office worker Tom Logan said: I would never admit this to friends but there are a lot of good things about Christmas – the time off work, the drinking, the eating. I even think those massive Christmas light displays that mental people have on their houses are quite pretty.
Winter would be pretty shit without it.
Guardian reader Emma Bradford said: Christmas is the time when I am ostensibly up in arms about commercialisation, which is weird because I buy myself expensive shoes, chairs and other consumer items through the year without any such reservations.
Perhaps the real reason I pretend to dislike it is that it is a bit common.
86-year-old Bill McKay said: Ive spent decades building my persona as the neighbourhoods most curmudgeonly old bastard. But when nobodys around I listen to carol records on my headphones.
I like their lyrical imagery of frosty landscapes and candle-lit nativity scenes. But of course if any kids come to my door raising their angelic voices in song I will tell them to fuck off.
