What is Twixmas? Well, you know those twilight days between Christmas and the New Year, when most of us barely make it out of our pyjamas and we eat our own body weight in chocolates and leftovers? That’s Twixmas.
The word itself stems from the old fashioned word ‘betwixt’, meaning between. It can be a peculiar few days, between the 27th and 30th December, when families are often thrown together and the dangerous combination of too much food, drink and boredom can have unpleasant consequences!
