This, from The Onion and via The Guru probably sums up the modern Christmas for most.

“Nothing puts me in the Christmas spirit more than sitting down on the couch with my parents and siblings, turning on the TV, and then proceeding to either look at the screen or gaze down into my glowing tablet display for hours on end,” 28-year-old Andrew McPherson told reporters”

Ours wasn’t like that at all. Interaction with Lego, friends, food and red wine worked out nicely.

All of which beats staring into a screen next to your family.
Mind you, that in turn beats spending 6 hours in A&E at the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield after smashing your head on the ice covered road outside the house.
