'Up north' visiting family for christmas alternative. Swopping presents and eating a local meat and potato pie which has vivid memories of childhood and beyond. I remember these and chip fish and mushy peas because when we worked in the factories these were the junk food of the day. When I visit St Helens I eat memory lane too.

My dad was a miner and I have many memories of childhood christmases. The fire place was left with a plate of mince pies for santa before we went to bed. Yes ..... only a few crumbs were left in the morning. Only good memories. Unlike many who I work with. For them christmas is a dread.
