    I've been giving this some more thought ... I can't even remember what we had for breakfast as children :o
    We always had an apple, orange and nuts in our stocking and that's the only food I can remember about the morning :laugh:
    I do remember the last Christmas my father was alive (he died 10 days later) feeling really jealous because he had a whole bowl of fresh fruits all to himself and we were not allowed to touch it and I can remember staring at this bowl of fruit like manna from heaven and drooling :rotfl: (Hey, I was just turned 6yo, it's forgiveable).

    I'm sure we must have had breakfast but no way can I remember what we had.

  • I can't believe the amount of people who eat chocolate and allow their kids to eat chocolate first thing in the morning! Yuck! I have always insisted my kids eat breakfast on Christmas morning, whether its cereal, toast or a boiled egg. They have never been allowed to then eat more than one bar of chocolate from their selection boxes otherwise it would totally spoil their dinner!

    Funny thing is, they have never complained and been quite happy to do this because they so look forward to Christmas dinner anyway!

    Sometimes it's important to work for that pot of gold...But other times it's essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow...

    we always open stockings upstairs first thing and then have breakfast before seeing what Santa has left under the tree
    we always have bagels with smoked salmon and cream cheese :D
    all that needs doing is toasting the bagels

    This is the kind of thing I would never buy through the year, but have bought at Christmas for years:

    Jordans cereal

    It's a quick, filling, tasty start to the day without having to cook.
    May all your dots fall silently to the ground.
  • I let them have chocolate too, as much as they want,whilst they are opening their pressies from us. They hardly have any sweets all year so I dont think it will hurt just for once. We never have less them about 7 veg with Christmas lunch at mums so I am sure that more than makes up for it. By the time the afternoon walk is over we are fighting fit again & ready to open our family pressies.

    Oh & i have leftovers from the night before because Christmas Eve is our turn to entertain & because we wont be eating at home agAin until the day after boxing day & we dont like waste!
    ....another happy bug.........sorry,blogger embracing the simple life

    We always have a house full of friends round and have bacon rolls and champers - keeps us going until the big meal at 5!

    I always do mulled wine too (family tradition - it's got a bit of a kick to it!!! But I'm normally left to drink it:))
