You simply have to get it done and out of the way.

Perhaps it will help to know that you’re not alone.

More people break up at Christmas than at any other time of the year, except Valentine’s Day.

Despite there being an awful lot of people saying they couldn’t dump someone over the holidays, it seems there are an equal number who have no such issues.

Here are five ways to dump your partner over Christmas if you’re struggling to work out how to do it.

Do it when discussing presents, not after getting them

It might seem like a nice idea to get a shiny present first but, in reality, if you dump someone after they’ve just bought you an iPad, you’re going to look like a bit of a prick.

When the subject of what you’re going to get each other comes up say something like ‘how about nothing because we won’t be together?’ and see what happens.

Alternatively, ask for ‘total honesty’
