WOO. GO MIKE!

*Cough*.

Is the christmas he decided to skip the same christmas as the one he realised was the best ever?

Is it that he just decided to skip a christmas then decided that christmas of say, 10 years ago, was better?

Did he celebrate the fact that he wasn't going to celebrate xmass, and by doing so, realised that he'd had a better time than what he would have done at xmass?

You say that the title is the ultimate clue - was he coming off drugs? and not over indulging meant that his whole body had a rest - heart, liver, stomach etc?

did avoiding the unhealth or bad food for this feast help him? help him avoid a heart attack he would of had otherwise?

any particular food important? is Turcky important?

particular people at christmas feast important? where it was held? Christmas traditions important?

quitting smoking important?

is there some food he didn't eat that he didn't want to eat? would that food of been unhealthy for him? have caused some emotional problem?

was he particualarly susptable to something this christmas that he usually wasn't? did he avoid the feast due to this suseptability?

is the thing he gained by skipping christmas a physical advantage? emotional? both?
was the advantage connected to health? Finacial advantage? get more/less presents or different presents? some other advantage?

the advantaged connected to amount of food he ate/would eat in future? type of food he ate/will eat? connected to people that would come to christmas feast? to where he wuold have christmas in future?

so I'm assuming he was quitting SOMETHING and there was a holiday tradition-one related to christmas feast-which would make it harder for him to quite?

going with that line of reasoning; was he stop drinking? and there was a tradition of a toast and/or alcholic eggnog that would make that difficult?

alternativly was he going on a diet or giving up a particular type of food he would of been tempted to eat at the feast
