Yes indeed ! A great 2017 - looking forward to a whole new year with Starling Bank.

Letโ€™s spare a thought for all those working over the holiday period (including that valiant team in customer services).

While many are celebrating Christmas on 25 Dec my church celebrate on 7 Jan each year, so I am looking forward to New Year first

What does a typical Christmas dinner look like on 7th January, Richard?

Happy Festive Season to everyone on here and in Starling Bank Tower. I am celebrating the event today, and have just finished BBQโ€™ing the 3 bird roast. A very prosperous to everyone and an amazing Banking experience from Starling.

I grew up having Xmas lunch time on the 25th Dec and only changed Church later in life when I was married. So I am probably not the person to answer :wink: But while family in Australia probably have prawns and fish off a barbeque on the beach, that would not satisfy me. I tend to have roast pork or boiled gammon as not a big fan of turkey (though occassionally enjoy duck or goose). I also like blood sausages (like black pudding) as a snack with potato and beetroot salads. Maybe soup as well. As for desert I enjoy pretty much anything with alcohol in :wink: , and mixed nuts raisins and chopped liquorice. I also eat Norwegian gingerbread and German leibkuchen. Mulled wine to wash it all down. Though I do enjoy my food enough to feast every day from 24th Dec to 7th Jan were I given the chance. This St Stephenโ€™s Day or Boxing Day I am with friends so having a vegan or vegetarian meal such as nut roast. I would also have Swiss chocolates and nougat, and Turkish lokum (real Turkish delight not that rubbery purple jelly covered in Frys chocolate). I will also have a similar meal for New Year with the addition of cold meat in aspic, and some Champagne style wine (whereas I would have desert wine at Christmas).

In Japan they eat KFC to celebrate Christmasโ€ฆthat just would not do it for me. Feeling totally stuffed like a beached seal is an important part of Christmas :wink:

Thanks Richard

This thread could become an annual event :grinning:


#10

I can always write more about food than banking as it is one of my pleasures in lifeโ€ฆso much so I taste food in my dreams and daydream about recipes

Merry Christmas everyone! As a Church of England Vicar I am celebrating with carols and midnight mass - with some presents after lunch tomorrow!

However you celebrate, or even if you donโ€™t, have a great day tomorrow.
