[Punch got a Christmas tree]

Punch and Judy's Christmas celebrations are not without complications.

'The Christmas ham wasn't half bad either.'

From the text

The holiday atmosphere started off festive (but quickly went downhill).

Judy was in the kitchen thinking, Punch will indulge in a dram or two this evening. Nevertheless, there's no denying he has such a good heart. A gallant artist with a good heart and a way with the children. The Christmas ham wasn't half bad either.
