ALL THE TRIMMINGS by Eddie Coleman


It’s Christmas Day in the trimmings household; Devoted sisters Patsy and Tracy are slaving away cooking Christmas dinner while the men folk are down the pub. Grandpa sits in his chair expecting his yearly Xmas snowball while Patsy’s daughter, Gemma, eagerly inspects the presents under their fantastic tree. Yet all is not as it seems. What does Kylie, Gemma’s university friend, need to tell Gemma urgently that it cannot wait? And why does Kath, the annoying neighbour, have a problem with Christmas Day?
