‘Be gay, spawn! Laugh, stuff yourselves, gorge and forget.’
Thanks to Stella Gibbons, I need no further instruction! Sometimes the only thing that will do at Christmas is snuggling down with a festive classic – with that in mind, we bring you the eye wateringly entertaining Christmas at Cold Comfort Farm.
Christmas brings utter mayhem and uproar at Cold Comfort Farm. Grim gifts are distributed, turkeys are compared to the insalubrious vulture, and the Starkadders see portents of doom within their own Christmas pudding. One unlucky individual finds the ‘bad sixpence’ – which means he will be penniless by the end of the new year – but another’s fate hangs in the balance as the coffin nail has yet to be discovered.
A quirky, witty and overall sweet selection of stories from the sheer madness of life at Cold Comfort Farm, made even madder at Christmastime, is well worth hunkering down with of a festive afternoon, with a cup of tea and a slice of Christmas cake (hopefully minus the coffin nail…)
