Yonks ago, when I was in my twenties and working at the very chic Red magazine, the team was asked to give quotes for a feature about how they spent Christmas Day. I was embarrassed to take part, because everyone else’s involved smoked-salmon and Champagne brunches, bracing country walks and polite, post-lunch present opening in front of the Queen’s speech, all done while wearing fancy cashmere sweaters. In contrast, Richmond Family Christmases were an unfettered binge of slobbery and self-indulgence, with prezzies ripped open before dawn, selection-box breakfasts in tea-stained reindeer PJs and semicomatosemovie sessions in the afternoon, because by then everyone was feeling too tired, farty and argumentative to leave the house.
