Celebs like spending Christmas just like rest of us

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 27/12/2013

So this is how the rich and famous spend Christmas. Tweets sent by household names from Northern Ireland show that celebrities celebrate the festive season much like the rest of us, opening presents, tucking into turkey and generally taking things easy as the food and wine take their toll.

Social media is usually lampooned for flooding the ether with the banal twittering of people who seem to have too much time on their hands and not enough sense. But it is also useful for giving us a glimpse behind the glitz and glitter of those who inhabit the world of celebrity and making us realise they're not really much different from us, just richer.
