Our Christmas Traditions
We asked the Shoal to tell us all about their Christmas traditions. From Monopoly games that last all week to eating Yule Log for breakfast, we love the festive season here at Weird Fish. What do you like doing?

Board game to play at Christmas – Always has to be Monopoly with family, but Cards Against Humanity with friends (too rude for granny!)
Christmas film – Too many to choose from! But has to be National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
Festive traditions – Stockings in bed first thing, ideally containing some fun things to keep us entertained as we hold off opening any under the tree gifts until after Christmas lunch, when it’s dark and cosy, with a glass of wine. I love stretching the day out as long as possible.
