‘Twas the Nightcap Before Christmas
It is Christmas Eve and as usual mum and dad are knee-deep in presents that need to be wrapped. Dad suggests a sherry ‘to keep us both going.’ Then out comes the Baileys. And mum hits the rum. Hours of merriment and a stocking- clad tango later, they drift off to sleep – the living room in disarray, the presents unwrapped and their careful Christmas preparations in ruins. But come morning it seems a mysterious visitor has saved the day.
