It's approaching Christmas time which means everything we do needs to have a festive twist.
Tea and biscuits? No! Tea and a mince pie.
Wine? Only if it's mulled!
Blog? Ok, but make it fun. So, here we have our latest 'One Minute With' blog: this time we ask our legend of a Warehouse Manager Rob, about his Christmas traditions.
Beth: Hi Rob. How are you spending Christmas?
Rob: We’re going home this Christmas, to Poland to see my parents, family and friends. We don’t see each other very often so we celebrate every moment when we are together.
B: What's your favourite part of Christmas lunch?
R: Well we don't do turkey, but we always enjoy big dinner cooked by my dad. He is a great cook and he always surprises us with something new!
B: What's your least favourite part of Christmas lunch?
R: It’s hard to say as I do like my Christmas lunch.
Maybe when I eat too much?
No, I love my food, especially when Christmas comes… you just can’t refuse one more portion offering from your mum!
B: Why would you want to!
What's the best Christmas song?
R: I don’t have one favourite Christmas song, I actually prefer carol singing at church or at home with the family.
That said, 'Driving home for Christmas' is very popular song at our house at the moment. My wife has it on repeat, so the song is on my mind day long. And Mariah Carey 'All I want for Christmas', obviously.
B: Some classic Christmas anthems there. Are you any good at wrapping presents?
R: No not at all. I’m useless. Remember last year I wrapped my wife’s Christmas present just using Ryno tape from work!
B: Ah, the truth comes out!! That's pretty bad Rob. However good to see you getting the Ryno brand in amongst the family circle.
Is there anything on your wish list?
R: My letter to Santa only asks for me and the family to stay healthy!
But of course a new bike wouldn't go wrong.
B: Snow- are you a fan?
R: I like snow when I can see my kids having fun, and Scotland is beautiful covered by snow.
I do miss winters with a lot of snow like we have in the motherland!
B: Do you have any festive traditions you just have to do?
R: Well. We start celebrating Christmas on Christmas Eve when we have a meal of twelve dishes without meat: mostly fish, dumplings, salads, cabbage dishes etc.
We share a special wafer when exchanging our Christmas greeting and then after the meal Santa comes and we sing carols. At midnight we go to church for the Christmas service and sing more carols.
Then on Christmas Day and Boxing day it's more food and even more carols. Then
On Boxing day it's more of the same: we don't do shopping as all of the shops are closed which I like. I think the most important thing during this season is to spend time with the people we love!
B: What a note to end on! Cheers Rob!
