She has no family of her own - apart from the cousin in Marple of course.

At a recent get together Kaz and her mates discussed Christmas plans.
Friend B's daughter will be visiting from London. She will be spending time at the local AA meetings as she's not fully cured yet - and she's still struggling with the cocaine habit.
Eileen will spend the 25th minding her son's dog in Sale. He's spending Christmas in Dorset with the in laws.
Jan and her husband have no kids - but that's OK because her sister and her FOUR very large sons will be staying for a few days.
Friend A will be alone in Tameside. She usually celebrates with her sister Pat. However, this year Pat has gone travelling in India. Rather an extreme way to avoid spending the day with A.

Hope you all had a good one too.
Stop PRESS - it's SNOWING!
