Usually see extended family but this year all a bit up in the air, think we'll just stay at home enjoying ds's new toys, eating Christmas chocolates and watching films. Maybe get a takeaway.

We’re big fat pigs on Boxing Day. Pyjamas all morning playing with toys. Picky lunch with an enormous amount of chocolate and visits to other family members houses late afternoon to get drunk

Boxing Day is basically Christmas Day take 2 for us so Christmas Eve we travel to DH's parents and then have Christmas Day there and then Boxing Day we travel back early to my parents and have Christmas Day take 2

The full sha-bang Dinner, presents, dressing up the lot! exhausting

Christmas Day is basically DH, MIL, FIL, Me & kids and 3 dogs (DH is an only child)

Boxing Day is DH, ME, 2 x kids, 2 x dogs, Mum, Dad, Sister 1, BIL, 2 x kids, Sister 2, 2 x Kids, Brother, SIL, 2 x kids - so it is MANIC

Past two years we have just stayed at home. DH is working on boxing day so me and the girls will chill with crappy food. Day after boxing day we'll go to my parents and so christmas day all over again.

Before kids we used to hit the sales. Can’t do that now with three young kids, so we spend the next day relaxing, eating leftovers and the kids playing with all their new stuff. All my family are interstate and hubbys family live overseas so we don’t get to have those huge get togethers, it’s just us.

Boxing day is usually a chilled one here. We stay in our pjs , untill 5 minutes before people come round then me and oh get changed. My mum and brother usually pop round for a bit, ohs mum pops round. We hang out and play with the kids toys, eat what we fancy untill dinner then its usually left overs.
This year we are doing christmas as usual but with our proper big dinner on boxing day and a vegetarian meal on xmas day. I dont eat meat on a monday ( a religious thing, even though im not very religous, that i have done all my life) i said OH and the kids could go ahead as usual but OH insists we will do it boxing day.

My dh has worked a lot of recent boxing days but not last or this year. He likes sport and I like shopping so we go to our nearest town and split up to football match or shops then back home for bubble and squeak and fizzy pops! We see family on Xmas day.
