    Wow you're brave, I couldn't think of anything worse than mingling with everyone on their last minute rush, the queues, the empty shelves.. Very brave! :thumbup:

    I've been into Cambridge on Christmas eve several times and it's always been a pleasure!. I think everyone thinks the same thing, Christmas eve to busy I'm not going shopping and infact it's lovely!. Not so good are the queues to get into Kings College though, they start queuing at silly o'clock in the morning!.

    No way on this earth. I will be going out to the supermarket very early to buy bread, milk and veg and that is it. Me and the kids will be nice and toasty in the house watching films/TV munching away and getting into the Xmas spirit. Shopping is definatley not on the agenda!!

    I enjoy the hustle and bustle but I don't go with presents still to buy or that would be so stressful.
    Not this year though as we'll have a newborn.
