With the countdown to Xmas upon us, combined with the fact that I am currently unable to eat anything naughty (or my personal trainer will throttle me with her own bare hands potentially!) and the fact I forgot to buy myself an advent calender this year... I have decided to run an online countdown to Christmas and Advent calender alternative in the form of an etiquette tip each day to keep you entertained, educated and knowledgeable in the face of bad manners this jolly (?!) season. You may find yourself getting angry in John Lewis or wrestling for the last Mince Pie in your local supermarket, but fear not, Miss Sue Flay is here to remind you to breathe and behave in equal measures... with a little luck at least! 1st December - A for "Affection": Don't be overly affectionate this Xmas time, it's embarrassing and anger-inducing for those around you, holding hands and quick kisses are fine, anything more intimate for the bedroom only! 2nd December - B for ": 3rd December - C for: 4th December - D for: 5th December - E for: 6h December - F for: 7th December - G for: 8th December - H for: 9th December - I for: 10th December - J for: 11th December - K for: 12th December - L for: 13th December - M for: 14th December - N for: 15th December - O for: 16th December - P for: 17th December - Q for: 18th December - R for: 19th December - S for: 20th December - T for: 21st December - U for: 22nd December - V for: 23rd December - W for: 24th December - X for: 25th December - Y & Z for: Do you have any tips or hints to share that help you to keep calm and polite at this slightly more stressful time of year?
