Most of the Brits having Christmas dinner at home this year feel that they will be doing the majority of the cooking, but perhaps unsurprisingly men and women disagree about their relative levels of involvement in the traditional task.

  • When asked who would be doing most of the Christmas dinner cooking, 46% of Brits who had previously stated they would be eating at home said ‘myself’
  • 28% said their partner would be doing the bulk of the work
  • 19% thought either their parents or their partner’s parents would be doing most of it
  • 4% said another relative
  • 1% said someone else.

Interestingly, and perhaps predictably for those involved, despite 46% feeling that ‘myself’ would be doing most of the work, women were much more likely to say they would be shouldering most of the job.

  • To the same question, 62% of women said ‘myself’
  • While just 29% of men said the same.
