Tell us your Christmas dinner disasters
Ruining the turkey, the dog eating the ham – there’s so much that can go wrong. We want to hear about your foodie fails
Christmas dinner can be a minefield. Have you had any festive mishaps?
You’ve defrosted the turkey, peeled the spuds and you made the Christmas cake weeks ago - what could possibly go wrong? Well, a lot actually. No matter how well we plan the most important meal of the year, disasters are commonplace when cooking and serving Christmas dinner. From forgetting to take the bag of giblets out of the bird to an enthusiastic Golden Retriever helping himself to half of the ham on Christmas Eve, and that time lighting the plum pudding ended up with a trip to the hairdresser to trim a singed fringe, with we’ve had our fair share of festive mishaps, and now we want to hear yours.
Tell us your funny Christmas dinner fails, and if you have a photograph of the evidence, even better.
