IT’S THE MAIN event of Christmas Day – but what time should it happen?

25 December can be a strange day in many households… Breakfast, in some homes, is a huge deal – with Superquinn sausages to beat the band, and endless fancy coffees.

Brunch, we’re told, is even observed by some families – although nobody in the newsroom is owning up to anything quite so déclassé. 

All of which throws up the vital question – what time will we all sit down to dinner? Will we even be hungry after all those vol-au-vents and upmarket Lidl sausage rolls?

But what do you think? As always, click a poll option – or join in the heated debate raging the comments section below (hopefully).

3pm (5427)
