Mum celebrates Christmas two months early so her family don’t miss out – and it only cost her a tenner

A FAMILY celebrated by tucking into their full Christmas dinner TWO MONTHS early. 

Karen Rhodes, from Chester, decided to make her family-of-three their meal well ahead of December 25 so she wouldn’t miss out on spending time with them on the big day. 

Karen shared a photo of their large Christmas meal which included all the trimmings from pigs in blankets to sprouts. 

Writing on the Facebook group Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas, she said: “I’ve seen a lot of posts about Christmas dinner and not wanting to spend all day in the kitchen and there have been lots of useful tips.

“We decided to have 'Christmas dinner' today because, why not?

“Less than 10 minutes to prepare, an hour to cook, with minimal work.”

The best part of Karen’s Christmas feast was that she fed three people for under a tenner, including the Christmas log she bought.

Many people were highly impressed with her making the Christmas meal now instead of spending hours in the kitchen on the day. 

One wrote: “Yumyum! I would rather spend time with the kiddies playing with pressies too then spending hours in the kitchen xxx.”

Another person added: “I prepare it all the night before then just pop it in the oven in the morning x”

We shared how Christmas dinners in lockdown areas could be broken up even if fewer than six people present, Government warns.

And we revealed how a mum charges her family £35 each for Christmas dinner and she's made £120 profit.
