There are lots of different characters in The Mince Pie Mix-Up - but which are YOU most like? Take the quiz to find out!
Choose the answer which most applies to you (A, B, C or D) then tot up which you picked most and read on to find out who you match up with.
It's the morning of 1st December - what are you most likely to be doing?
A) Sorting breakfasts, making sure PE kits are in bags and packing lunches. All while making sure the kids only eat ONE chocolate from their advent calendar.
B) Who cares what the date is? Is 1st December supposed to mean anything to me?
C) The same thing as any other day - I'll be sat in traffic on my way to work. So much for comfort and joy.
D) I'll be packing for my Caribbean cruise. The cruise isn't for a few weeks yet but there's so much to organise!
What will you be having for Christmas dinner?
A) We're pretty traditional: turkey with all the trimmings (including sprouts).
B) I haven't even thought about Christmas dinner yet. I have deadlines to meet, you know!
C) Whatever the wife cooks.
D) I'll be on my Caribbean cruise, maybe even eating at the captain's table!
What's on your wish list this year?
A) I've almost run out of my favourite perfume, so some more would be nice.
B) To meet these looming deadlines and make a healthy profit.
C) I'm a man of simple tastes. A new pair of slippers will do so I can sit and read my newspaper in comfort.
D) The Caribbean cruise was at the top of my list, followed by a new extension and kitchen (which my fabulous hubby has bought me). Other than that, I'd quite like something pretty and obscenely expensive from Tiffany's. And maybe a new car. I bought my hubby one for Christmas - surely I deserve an upgrade too!
Where would you most like to spend Christmas this year?
A) At home, with my family
B) Somewhere where they don't celebrate Christmas so I can get on with my work in peace.
C) In the pub with my mates.
D) On a Caribbean cruise, of course!
Do you believe in Father Christmas?
A) I believe in the magic of Father Christmas and the joy he brings.
B) I don't have time for these silly questions.
C) Erm, no.
D) No and neither does my daughter. I make sure she knows where her gifts come from - me and her father. We didn't spend all that money for some fictional fat bloke in a suit to take all the credit!
What's your favourite festive film?
A) The Snowman - it reminds me of childhood Christmases
B) A Christmas Carol - but only the beginning. I can't stand the soppily after ever bit.
C) Elf. It's hilarious.
D) I don't have time to sit and watch silly films. I have a Caribbean cruise to prepare for!
And your favourite festive song?
A) Gloria Estefan's 'Christmas Through Your Eyes'. I'd love to experience Christmas as a child again and have fun without all the hassle.
B) The Pogues' 'Fairytale of New York'.
C) Wizzard's 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day' and then I could relax without ever having to go to work.
D) Kylie Minogue's 'Santa Baby'.
So which character from The Mince Pie Mix-Up are you?
Judy's busy during the festive period, juggling family life with work and Christmas shopping. She loves Christmas but she would like a little bit of help from her husband to ease some of the stress.
Perry doesn't dislike Christmas. He'd just rather it didn't exist as it's nothing but a distraction for his employees.
Calvin enjoys Christmas because it means he gets a bit of time off work to relax. He doesn't like all the nitty gritty bits of Christmas - shopping, wrapping gifts, writing cards - but luckily his wife is so good at organising all that stuff so he doesn't have to.
If Abby could buy the spirit of Christmas, she would. Abby enjoys the benefits of Christmas (presents) but she doesn't necessarily like all the planning and cooking involved.
About The Book
‘I wish I could live your life. I’d happily swap lives with you.’
’Tis the season to be jolly but for Calvin and Judy the usual festive bickering has already begun! Judy’s convinced that her husband has it easy – no glittery wrapping paper, no playground gossip and absolutely no Christmas baking.
Calvin wishes he could trade in his obnoxious boss and dull nine-to-five job to spend more time kicking back with his kids – how hard can Judy’s life really be?
But after a magical mince pie mix-up, one thing’s for certain – by Christmas Day, life for Judy and Calvin will never be the same again. Perhaps the grass isn’t always greener after all…
