Christmas PR puffs: Liverpudlians too busy for family

Christmas PR puffs: Liverpudlians too busy for family

ALMOST two-thirds of Liverpudlians are too busy throughout the year to spend quality time at home with family and loved ones - 64 percent, compared to a national average of 68 percent.

This is the finding of a consumer survey that claims to reveals our habits over the Christmas period and, according to its results, people here are no different to anywhere else.

More than half of 18 to 65 year olds nationwide (1,500 in the sample) said that Christmas Day, over and above Christmas Eve and Boxing Day, is their favourite time.

It goes on: "Liverpudlians love being at home on 25 December with 83 percent (vs. the national average of 84 percent) saying being surrounded by family is important to them, beating bank holidays, birthdays and cosy Sunday lunches. In fact 8 out of 10 (80 percent) Liverpudlians consider home as the place they feel most relaxed and happy.

"Over a third of Liverpudlians (37 percent) say the best bit about the Christmas period is spending time with loved ones rather than having a few days off work.  

"After one of the most exciting years in recent British history, reassuringly 71 percent will try to buy British brands this  Christmas; brands  that  represent  authenticity  whilst  communicating  our  history  and heritage, from Mr. Kipling mince pies to Greenall’s Gin (who commissioned the survey!)

"Five percent  of Liverpudlians say their  favourite part of Christmas  is when  it’s all over, which makes Liverpool residents more festive than the national average of 7 percent."

But not much.

Could the heading of this article be mistaken for being "homophobic"????????????????

Only if you were speaking in some quaint 1970's sitcom language that was derived from Carry On, Til death us Do Part and On The Buses?

No, Puff was a magic dragon. Also in 1970s sitcom language it was spelt "poof" which presumably rhymes with roof.

My Aunty Betty once won a poof at the bingo in the 1970s. We all took turns when we went round.

We had one. It leaked sawdust on the new carpet.
