Love this take on Christmas and New Year – Thanks Joanne 👍😃😄
Christmas food is in a league of its own.
In the 21st century, there is increased awareness of the health risks of excessive eating and therefore the majority of people tend to exert a bit of control over what they eat.
Not at Christmas.
Every time we substitute chips with salad, deny ourselves a slice of cake or practice any other form of culinary self-control, a little bit of tension is stored within us.
All of this tension is released on Christmas day.
The sheer mass of food present at Christmas is enough to intimidate most people.
Food is everywhere.
Some items of food are be served within other items of food, like Inception but with calories instead of dreams.
People buy presents that are specifically targeted to further increase their ability to consume food and drink.
It is impossible to escape from the near continuous torrent of food.
