Your crazy uncle, a subpar gift, reflections on the year that was – for some of us, Christmas Day really isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. On Chapel Street though, there’s a certain calm in the air. In other words, like most places in Melbourne, it’s pretty bloody dormant. No bumper to bumper traffic or completely unobservant peds.
To help throw at least one of your Xmas Day ails out the door, why not let someone else handle the cooking and the clean up?
