A British Christmas Meal Usually Takes Six Hours to Prepare

 - Dec 20, 2012
This infographic discusses British Christmas statistics in a refreshingly funny way.

The first statistic about British Christmas provided is that 39% of the English are confused about what kind of wine to drink at dinner. Is it really that tough a decision?

They have a lot of time to think about which wine they'd like because the average Brit spends over six hours cooking Christmas dinner. The rest of the family spends the same amount of time digesting it. The average Briton eats approximately 4,000 calories in a Christmas meal, twice the recommended daily calorie count.

In 2008, the UK consumed an astounding 250 million pints of beer, 35 million bottles of wine, 25 million Christmas puddings and ten million turkeys. Yearly, the UK spends 1.6 billion euros on Christmas dinner alone.
