I think the perfect way to spend Christmas is to be with your family for the day, but this year I will be in sightseeing in Japan.

To be together with my immediate family and head to the beach would make the perfect Christmas for me. This year, I'll be hanging out with colleagues in Japan though.

I think the ideal Christmas has to involve a big Christmas dinner, followed by curling up for a snooze on the sofa and then watching some live sport on TV.

For a perfect Christmas, I think you need to head somewhere with plenty of snow, eat a lot of food and have fun with family and friends.

Next year I will be getting married on the Brooklyn Bridge in New York at Christmas, so that will make the perfect day for me.

For a perfect day I think you need to be about 5,000 miles away from the British Christmas. Away from the crap music, hectic shops and the general festivities.
