People may have to eat all the Christmas food they’ve bought, warn experts

Commentators are predicting that for the first time since 1964 families may end up without a ridiculous mountain of leftover food after Christmas. Heavy snowfalls, combined with poorly-stocked supermarkets and binmen strikes, could mean that families are reduced to eating everything they’ve bought, including the Aldi After Eight-like mint chocolates someone gave them last year.

Housewife Kate Scutt commented: ‘It’s going to be a complete disaster. I buy it every year, but nobody actually likes filo pastry. Then there are the capers, the red cabbage and the celeriac. I never had any intention of cooking or eating any of it – I just bought it to look good. What am I going to do now? I haven’t got a tin of spaghetti hoops in the house. This is worse than cannibalism – we could all starve by twelfth night.’
