My Christmas: John Hargreaves

There are two running themes among the responses in RiotACT columnist John Hargreaves’ My Christmas offering. The former Labor MLA will be drinking whisky aplenty this festive season as he watches children’s eyes light up as they open their gifts …

What I love most about Christmas is … seeing the eyes of our family’s kids light up when they get pressies

What I love least about Christmas is … the hypocrisy of people who wouldn’t give one the time of day saying Merry Xmas. Bah humbug!

My best ever Christmas was … when I was in the migrant hostel and my parents made my Chrissie presents – mad with love not money!

My favourite Christmas songs are … Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano

My favourite Christmas film is … I don’t have one cos they are either too biblical or two mushy!

I celebrate on Christmas Eve by … having a whisky or two with my child bride

I celebrate on Christmas Day by … having a whisky or two with my family over a traditional dinner/lunch

On Boxing Day I love … having a whisky or two with family members who couldn’t make it on Christmas Day, around my pool.

The gift I’d most like to give this Christmas is … Whatever I can think of to make their eyes light up!

For Christmas this year I’d like … six dozen cases of single malt Scotch whisky to cater for Christmas 2017
