It's Christmas Eve and you've still an awful lot to do. You better head into town and do some shopping.
This is a relaxed small(ish) text adventure in the classic parser style (but with a much wider vocabulary), and also with a modest attempt at humour! So pour yourself a glass of port, and get your thinking cap on.
UPDATE: This game has now been ported to Inform 7: http://textadventures.co.uk/games/view/0icnxg-riu2proj5l4cs3a/a-christmas-game-inform-port
