Special purchases at xmas

So what do you buy at Xmas that you wouldnt normally buy throughout the year ?

I tend to buy tins of choccies ....preferably Quality Street

I buy lots of cheese and pate

I buy Tecos Luxury mince pies

I buy port as i get a fancying for it at Xmas



I think thats it.

I'm not perfect, but im so close it scares me

I love Japanese Rice Crackers but Christmas is the only time I see them in Tescos. I bought a few tubs to stock up, but I have eaten them already! :unsure: :ohmy:

Have to have a tin of chocolates, we got heroes this year cause you get 1.5kg instead of 1kg with celeberations.

All sorts of nibbles, crisps and biscuits for Xmas day night to pick on.

Lots of wine and beer.

And of course Xmas crackers, the naffer the better.

oooh I went to Aldi to get posh looking cheap chocs and fun sweeties for the Big girls 24 -11 bratzzzzz X4. For our little man age 4 we have choccie cars and he loves little ice gems.
For the past 5 years we have not had a tin of QS or heroes or roses as it tortures my autistic daughter, its so painfully funny to watch her not so discreetly nick them in so many creative obvious ways we had to stop, we also got fed up ,of the sick from overload!!!!
We have Christmas Dinner on Christams eve and party games like pass the parcel and one present.
On the day we have a buffet with volauvents tartlets potato wedges dips raw food like carrots etc no meal just grazing. On Boxing Day we will have a meal with friends that I we share the cost of and I cook.
I may buy four bottles of wine to see us through. I no longer spend a fortune on food and we miss non of it.
