There are only a few more days until the big reveal, where you stand proudly in front of your family and friends holding a giant perfectly golden turkey. They'll oooh and aaah and you'll feel like Nigella and Delia just bowed down at your feet.
This is the dream scenario, but in reality, you'll probably burn something, overcook the carrots and check the turkey legs ten times to make sure they're perfectly cooked.
According to new research by Asda, Brits take 12 years to become truly confident Christmas cooks and are at their culinary peak at 36-years-old.
58% of Brits will attempt their first Christmas meal extravaganza at 24, but it takes over a decade to make sure the sprouts, roasties, stuffing and turkey are all ready on time.
18% of first time festive cooks have admitted to buying a giant turkey without checking if it will fit in their oven. We can't imagine that sort of stress on Christmas morning!
So if you're nervous about crafting the perfect dinner with all the trimmings, spare a thought for a tenth of the population who won't attempt a spread. EVER!
Most Brits cite the pressure of disappointing their mum as the real reason why they don't play host.
Talk about back seat cooking!
