Good food is part of Christmas. This often results in a well-stocked refrigerator, which could give you less chance of seeing what is actually in there and when it is going to go out of date, making it easy to leave food for too long before it is eaten. Therefore, it is important to keep the fridge temperature low (maximum 4°C) to stop food from becoming spoiled or dangerous.
