A lot of us wake up on the 25th December expecting a day full of festive fun – unwrapping presents next to the tree, clinking glasses over a mouth-watering meal and spending the afternoon in front of golden Xmas telly.
Sometimes though, it can end up a little more hectic than planned!
If producing the perfect Christmas feast wasn’t enough, we’ve got to put up with family feuds, constant games and a tipsy grandma!
While there’s elements of fun on Christmas Day, we think the real magic lies in Boxing Day…
Gone are the pressures of impressing family and smiling our way through the craziness – Boxing Day is for bingeing shows on Netflix, scoffing the turkey leftovers and relaxing until the work year starts again.
What’s also great about Boxing Day is the return of old school mates and childhood friends – everyone’s home again for the holidays! What better way to wind down after the Christmas chaos than catching up with your oldest and dearest?
The Loose Ends app is a great way to find out who’s out and about in your area. All you need to do is create a Loose End – pick the place, activity, date and time – and wait and see who joins in!
Last month, we ran a competition inviting our wonderful Twitter fans to send us a photo of themselves with a mate having fun this Boxing Day.
We received a ton of fantastic submissions, from dads and daughters on a day out…
To festive double-jumper fun…
…to best mates and booze!
(What better way to spend the day, Catherine?)
Some of you travelled back to caveman times…
… others spent it at the stage.
These lucky ladies spent the day surrounded by their besties…
…but we’re most jealous of this cute little pair!
Thank you to everyone who submitted their photos – we loved every one!
We picked a photo out at random and crowned @SuperLaurenLove our winner of a £50 voucher to any restaurant of their choice – hey, if you’re having trouble picking which restaurant to head to, the Loose Ends app can give you a helping hand!
