Some of us might enjoy the run-up to Christmas, some of us might even have fun on the day itself, but not JONATHAN RAY: 'I must confess to finding both journey and destination pretty grim.' Drink your way through, is his advice, and a cracking fizz to start things off is Mumm Demi-Sec Champagne (22.49; Waitrose). For party wines that won't break the bank, Ray suggests 2003 Tiki Ridge Sauvignon Blanc/Chardonnay, New Zealand (4.99; Waitrose) and 2004 Sainsbury's Australian Merlot (3.99).
