Angus Deayton takes a wry look at the funny side of Christmas, including everything from cringe-worthy gifts and festive fads to cheesy songs and unsettling Santas.

Festive foul-ups include Christmas light failures, an unfortunate reindeer stuck on a rooftop, and probably the most disappointing grotto ever. The show also includes some never-seen-before TV presenter festive faux pas and assorted bloopers. Plus there is a blast from the Christmas past including Cabbage Patch-mania, The Krankies Christmas TV Special and a 1950s festive cartoon oddity with an unfortunate name.

Angus even uncovers some gems from around the world including a Mexican nativity scene recreated by radishes.
