Let’s face it, Christmas is not about carolling or chestnuts, wherever they’re roasting, or even Jack Frost nipping at your nips. It’s about growing into your sofa with a mince pie halfway to your mouth. At all times.
Which is for why we bring you our indispensible guide to the ONE THING you must be sure not to miss on United Kingdom TV (which will mostly be Her Majesty’s BBC, as they’re very good not only with programmes but with providing pictures!)
For this very day, Christmas Eve, while shepherds are watching their flocks and the Three Kings are picking something nice out of the Argos catalogue, we will mostly be watching this all-new bit of Shrek-ery called Shrek the Halls.
What it is is… the Gingerbread Man, Puss in Boots and Donkey come round to Shrek’s to tell some Christmas stories. S’nice.
