Every family has a set routine at Christmas, right?
Whether that be the Christmas tree is always decorated in red and gold or that Granny always sits at the head of the dinner table.
One such tradition in our household is that no matter what is happening at 15:00, the house will stop and the entire family WILL watch The Queen’s Speech together on Christmas Day afternoon.
I’m fairly certain this tradition came from Mom’s half of the family as Dad never really seems that interested.
Either that, or he’s too intoxicated to really know what’s being side.
It’s also a family tradition to guess what colour Queen Elizabeth will be wearing before it’s transmitted. (I’m not going to admit to cheating here, but usually I will find out in a newspaper beforehand and lay claim to victory! Here’s to making a correct ‘guess’ for the fourth year running!) This year I’m going for green (and no, I haven’t actually seen this year’s in the paper yet!)
There is also a second family tradition on Christmas Day in the Tomlinson household.
Richard WILL get the last roast potato whether anyone likes it or not!

One of ours is that Dad hides a sprout under the kids’ carrots to try and make them eat one ‘by accident’. He still does this and the youngest one is 25.
