Unreasonable family arguments are no doubt something that happened all around the world over christmas, but in 1947 Mr and Mrs Kirtley took a petty fight over their differing levels of christmas spirit to a whole new level.
I am impressed with her story of how her husband managed to get shot though. To say she was shooting her gun out of the window to emphasize her christmas spirit and that he stepped in the way of the bullet shows quite an imagination. I am glad they are not my neighbours!
I expect that the likelihood of being shot by a stressed out family member rises quite considerably during the festive season.
