We know that most of the world grinds to a well-deserved halt on Christmas Day--shops close, the mail stops, and everyone cuddles up by the fireplace and plays Scrabble while snow gently falls outside and Bing Crosby croons to you through a Baileys-induced stupor. But what if you don't have a fireplace, you hate Scrabble, and you smashed your bottle of Bailey's over the stereo to make the Crosby stop?
