The `Faith` singer came close to death earlier in December battling life-threatening illness pneumonia, but following his recovery he is feeling better than ever and particularly enjoyed the festive period with his loved ones.
He wrote in a series of twitter posts: "Best Christmas I can remember, surrounded by the people I love- "And knowing that Xmas could have been very different this year for everyone at that table-..
"As it was we stuffed and laughed ourselves silly. I`m such a lucky man! I hope you all had a great one. It`s not over, of course, I have a house full of sleeping guests and a bunch more friends coming over today. Hangovers strictly forbidden :) (sic)"
Writing on twitter before Christmas Day, George told how is yet to fully regain his voice after his illness but was sure the problem would be "temporary".
He said: "I`m back and I`m proud, though not very loud...... (which, I assure you, will be temporary!) MERRY XMAS TO ALL OF YOU! ISN`T LIFE GRAND !! X(sic)"
George had to cancel a number of dates in his Symphonica tour when he was struck down with pneumonia, and in a hastily called press conference outside his home last week, he admitted the severity of the illness had been played down to his fans.
He said: "I`d say it was touch and go for a few weeks. And I played it down, I didn`t want to worry my fans too much and I`m really sorry that I couldn`t contact them in any way before now, but I was in no state to."
