Bright lights and festive gaiety during Christmas might not be for everyone. If you’re a bit of a Christmas Grinch, maybe bright TV screens and sports channels will be more up your alley.

If you’re not much for breaking a sweat either, then maybe a quick round of PlayStation games will remind you of the joys of Christmas!
