First argument on Christmas Day to begin at 10.13am

London, Dec. 24 (ANI): An average family will have at least five arguments on Christmas - with the first fued taking place at 10.13 am, a new survey has revealed.

The research surveyed 2,000 British families to see how Christmas Day will be celebrated.

The survey found that after the early confrontation, the next family row will take place at 12.42 pm when 38 percent of kids will moan about receiving the wrong gifts, the Telegraph reported.

Nearly half of British people - 45 percent - admitted that parents will fall out in between 1 pm and 3 pm - because the father would have had too much to drink and the mother would be stressed out about food preparation.

The study conducted by hotel chain Travelodge also showed that the traditional Christmas dinner will be served at 2.23 pm, an hour before the next family row.

One in ten people revealed that the lunch-time argument will be about family gossip, "who is the better person" and old family arguments.

A day consisting of food and drink will result in an evening of squabbling at 6.05 pm - when 15 percent of families will fight for the possession of remote control.

This will be followed by a fight at 7.25 pm by 7 percent of senior family members trying to play charades.

At 10.15 pm, after the drinks are over and the last mince pie has been eaten, tempers will flare up just before bedtime.

The researchers have drawn up a list of how a typical British family will spend Christmas Day this year:

08:00 Wake-up

09:00 Have breakfast

10:00 Start eating the sweet selection boxes and chocolate tins

10.13 First family argument
