I presume you aren't married, if you are you may not be on Boxing Day.

Even with the wife's patience at my car washing antics, I'd be wearing the lance of the pressure washer somewhere very painful if I even tried to suggest it. It really wouldn't cross my mind on Christmas day.

I see nothing wrong with it, everyone's circumstances are different even if they do celebrate that particular day. I have in the past, before a long journey for example. You enjoy your 2 hours

If you can forecast that far ahead with accuracy, then you'd trump all the meteorological organisations in the world.

Two small boys + wife who thinks I'm a bit unhinged anyway means no, I won't be washing anything more than dishes on Christmas Day. Fair play to you if you do though, especially if there's a nice new shampoo or wax under the tree this year. After all, lots of people will be playing with their new toys, no reason detailers can't, too!
