The festive season is a time for social gatherings and family interaction. But it can also be a stressful time if family relations are spoilt by bad behaviour.

The cousins are constantly fighting. Aunts and uncles are defending their brood. Your parents don’t like your children’s table manners. Your in-laws think they’re rude. The potential pitfalls are endless.

By putting some basic manners in place before your holiday, you can reduce the likelihood of conflict and pave the way for a peaceful, happy holiday.
