Turn Off The Television
I remember reading a year ago (or more) that the number one reason why Christmas Day arguements occur is because of the television, whether it is because of who has control of the remote control (and thus chooses what everyone watches) or because there is an argument about what is actually being watched. The best way to avoid all of this messing about is to keep the television switched off throughout the day (or at least most of it). When you think about it you really dont need the television on at all, put on the Christmas CD that you bought a couple of days ago and let the songs fill the room with the background noise you need. If you have children you will already have plenty of toys and games to use as a family so you should be more than occupied throughout the day. Then comes the Christmas dinner, which will be at the table meaning no television then either. By all means go the other way and watch it to your hearts content, but dont say I didnt warn you.
