With Christmas fast approaching, we know that your preferences will be crucial to what ends up under your Christmas tree. But when there’s so much to choose from, it can be tricky to know what you really want! We’ve narrowed the options down in a game of Would You Rather – Christmas Edition, where you can only choose one option per question! Choose wisely
Would You Rather:
Winter or summer weather for Christmas?
An age-old dispute: is it better to have a White Christmas with warm wine and cosy jumpers, or a hot Christmas in the sun and a nap following an afternoon of swimming?
Google Maps or a GPS to navigate to Christmas lunch?
Depending on where you’re driving to (i.e. within a city or in regional areas), Google Maps may be sufficient if you have phone reception throughout the car trip. However, if you’re anything like my family, you’ll need a GPS to navigate you down a dirt road when you’re an hour from the nearest town.
Google Translate or an old fashioned bi-lingual dictionary for your international adventures?
For those of us lucky enough to escape the country this Christmas break, you may be in need of a translator. Google Translate is great and can come up with some hilarious translations. But a trusty bi-lingual dictionary can come in handy too, especially when you’d rather save your phone battery for sightseeing photos.
YouTube or Spotify for those lengthy car rides?
One excellent form of entertainment for long car trips has to be music. Whether it’s different passengers taking turns at playing the DJ for an hour or switching over to a reading of your favourite novel, YouTube and Spotify provide something for everyone.
Reading the newspaper or turning on the TV to catch the latest news?
A break from work over Christmas is always welcomed, but without access to the newspapers and TV in the lunchroom every day, how are you going to catch up on the latest news at home?
Flights to a tropical destination or flights to your relatives this festive season?
Will you be flying to a destination you’ve never been to before? Or trying to fit all your Christmas presents into one suitcase for the flight home?
Cryptocurrency or old school cash and card to buy your Christmas presents?
Although Cryptocurrency (such as Bitcoin) is becoming increasingly popular, old school cash and card is what most of us are still using. You might find it a bit tricky to do your Christmas grocery shopping and pay with Bitcoin!
Netflix movies or a trip to the cinema to keep the kids entertained these school holidays?
Netflix offers a barrage of entertainment, with something to suit everyone. But this choice is a tricky one: do you put on a movie at home or head to the cinema for an immersive experience? Although you can only pick one winner in this game, the best solution would be to choose both and cash in on Hoyts’ discounted movie tickets if you are an Optus Perks member.
Using your smartphone or camera to capture Christmas lights?
Taking photos in low-light can prove to be a tricky task (although this is something Samsung’s Note9 perfects), so do you choose to take photos in low-light on your smartphone or a separate camera?
A seafood Christmas lunch or a poultry Christmas lunch?
One of the most controversial Would You Rather’s, and one that always seems to divide the nation. Would you rather have a nice seafood feast on Christmas day, or go for the more traditional turkey and cranberry sauce?
