The same box of Panettone has been presented as a gift to a record fourth different house in only six days.
There is a real danger that the strange cake/bread fruit nonsense will have reached its final destination, with only New Year celebrations left to pass it on.
Local mum, Murial Hislop only has a fairly standard visit to her mums’ planned for tomorrow afternoon, and then it’s straight into the New Year’s stuff.
‘I can’t give it me mum. She won’t have enough time to give it away again,’ said Hislop.
‘I suppose I could open it. But what the hell is it? And it just seems too massive, and dry looking,’ added Hislop.
