Bill Bailey has revealed he'd love to hold a Mexican-themed Christmas
Bill Bailey would like a Mexican-themed Christmas.
The 51-year-old comedian has admitted he would like to mark the special day by doing something out of the ordinary, like wearing a sombrero and eating burritos.
Asked if he'd like to have a themed Christmas, he said: "Yeah, Mexican. I think Mexican would be fun. You know, the whole sombreros, margaritas, tamales, burritos - just go the full works."
Bill also recalled the strangest gift he's ever received on December 25.
He said: "One of the strangest was a knitted praying mantis, which is a beautiful thing. It was a big praying mantis, but knitted. It was beautifully made but really quite disturbing.
"When I got it, I was in a hotel and I just sort of got into the room and put it down by the bed and went to sleep. When I woke up in the morning, this thing was there and I jumped out of my skin. I'd completely forgotten it was there."
And Bill explained that the unusual gift can still be found in his home.
He said: "It's in the house somewhere. I bring it out now and again to scare people."
