                  B. Turning down an invite. But, baby, it’s cold outside?

                            Mostly As: The Joker 

                            Above: You're so Aubergine
                             
                            Truly the life and soul of the party, everyone loves to see you landing at the door, loaded up with more gifts than Santa himself. Lover of an inside joke and a glass of bubbly on Christmas Eve, you likely have a job the older members of your family don’t fully understand – probably in marketing.
                             
                            Most likely to: Be the first to get your hands on the crackers and you’ll be rocking that little paper hat all of Christmas Day! 
                             
                            Fave festive flick: A big kid at heart, it’s Home Alone all the way.

                            Above: Your number one? Passionfruit Martini of course!
                             
                            Boujie to the core and you know it. Your contribution to the tree is as chic and sophisticated as you are. A lover of the finer things in life, you can always be relied upon to make a fab charcuterie board. However, you’ll probably whip up that exotic new recipe you picked up on your travels, “from this dahlinggg little restaurant in the foothills of Peru dear, you’ll love it!” 
                             
                            Most likely to: Be found by the tree arranging presents, cocktail in hand. 
                             
                            Fave festive flick: It’s either The Holiday (you're such an Amanda) or a classic like White Christmas.

                            Above: Our Resolution Bauble is the one for you

                             
                            Santa’s No.1 fan, and not afraid to let everyone know. You’re the sentimental type who just wants everyone to have a good time and will likely rope others into a matching PJ set come Christmas Eve. Although others may roll their eyes at your enthusiastic manifestations for 2023, they’d be lost without you. You make everyone else’s Christmas extra special, and they know it. 
                             
                            Most likely to: Start planning come November 1st and have the holiday tunes blasting long before anyone else. How long has your tree been up exactly? 
                             
                            Fave festive flick: You tell everyone It's a Wonderful Life is your holiday go-to, but we all know it’s The Santa Clause. You have a thing for Bernard, and that’s ok.

                            Above: Beans on Toast is your festive go-to

                             
                            There’s always one. You may not shout ‘bah humbug’ out the window or be tempted to pelt carollers with snowballs, but you secretly can’t wait till everything returns to normal. That’s why you go out of your way to avoid the fuss. Even Christmas foods can be a little too rich for your stomach, you want to keep things simple...like beans on toast. 
                             
                            Most likely to: Head to bed early with a ‘headache’ – code for, “Please don’t bother me; I need to recharge before I can handle any more Michael Bublé”. 
                             
                            Fave festive flick: I’ll give you two guesses...though you turn it off halfway through, before his heart grows three sizes.
