Many families have Christmas rituals. There are rituals around food, spiritual rituals and activity rituals. In Spiralling Out of Control, the main character’s family finds themselves in a new situation, with no family surrounding them as they had previous years. Stephanie’s father comes up with a brilliant idea summing up the year in one sentence –and they find everyone is willing to be completely honest, something none of them have been through the year.
Do you behave differently at Christmas time? Are you kinder, more forgiving and more generous?
What rituals do you implement every year for Christmas?
