1. Freedom of choice

You're not forced to eat turkey so you can have whatever the hell you want. 

2. It's sunny

Well, I mean... it's usually sunnier than Christmas.

3. Chocolate

An obvious one but perhaps the most important.

4. No presents

You're not obliged to buy presents for anyone which means more of your hard-earned money just for you. 

5. The pubs are open

Not on Good Friday but pints can be had on Easter Sunday which is really what it's all about. 

6. No shite music

No Mariah, no Cliff Richard, no Slade. Bliss.

7. It's always on a Sunday

Unlike the shitshow that is Christmas when you don't know what day is when. 

8. You don't really have to go home

A simple phone call will suffice. Try that at Christmas and see what happens.

9. Finally, no shit Christmas cracker jokes
