The difference between the English Christmas and ours

according to the reflections of Mark Steyn.

I spent one Christmas in London and it was the most boring day in my life. No restaurants open, no plays, no way to get to them if you wanted to, because no transportation was running. No taxis, no buses, no underground. The movies were closed!

How do the English while away the long, dreary day? They don't, as a rule, attend church. Do they eat a large meal in the middle of the day and then sit around burping? Do they talk to their families incessantly for twelve hours? Do they get drunk?

How do they get through the day without going to the movies?
