  4. Dawn Costen says

  5. Luna says

    My favourite thing has to be the atmosphere that excited feeling that there is a crackle of magic in the air, also usually there’s an New Agatha Christie programme on, there’s tons of nice food and you can be lazy and not feel guilty.

  10. Fiona Harris says

    Fantastic giveaway!! you have worked hard :) best bit for christmas for me is spending time with my Nephew and Nieces

  11. Vicki Macdonald says

    The magic of christmas to me is in my grandaughters eyes, the innocence of believeing in santa, watching them in their christmas plays, the homemade cards & decorations i’ll treasure forever. After losing my son in an RTA i never thought i’d be able to feel the magic again, but my grandaughter has given me the best gift – the magic of christmas again.

  12. says

    I love snuggling up on the sofa, mince pie and cuppa at the ready, and highlighting all my Christmas TV viewing in the Bumper Radio Times! (and tying but failing to do the massive Cryptic Crossword!)

  13. Jacqui S says

    I love that we’re all together, don’t have to rush anywhere, we can enjoy all of our preparations, light those expensive smelling candles, get the Christmas flowers out the garage, open the bubbly and vegetate for a few days without having to hare off to a usual commitment. Roll on December 25th. Happy Christmas all! xx

  14. cathy creighton says

  17. Caroline Clarke says

    My favourite thing about Christmas is watching the joy in my son’s eyes as he drinks in the magical feeling of this wonderous holiday.

    The magical qualities, real or imagined, that restore hope for the future and bring light and goodwill into our homes.

  26. Laura Harris says

    Has to be dinner on the big day with all the trimmings, followed by staggering to the sofa and collapsing afterwards!

  27. Val Pownall says

    Getting all the decs out and making the house look sparkly, and the look on the little one’s faces, and all the fun. Our smallest will be one a few days before Christmas, so it’s even more special, and her big sister will be 5 a few days after! Very exciting!

  28. Sue Bowden says

    The hustle and bustle, making sure that everything is as perfect as it’s going to be for the big day, then spending the day with all my wonderful family.

  29. michelle lintern says

    I love fairy lights in every room for when its dark, with the anticipation of whats in the presents under the tree.

  30. Phil Darling says

    The best thing for me about Christmas is the whole family sitting round to play board games in the evening, after a full days eating and opening presents

  31. Hazel Rea says

    My favourite thing about Christmas is when we all sit down together on Christmas Eve to have our first full Christmas meal by candlelight. We started doing this when the children were tiny so I could enjoy Christmas morning without worrying about the turkey and now it is a family tradition. There is such a great feeling of anticipation.

  32. CAT CULMER says

    I love buying and wrapping gifts for others and seeing their faces on Christmas morning. Christmas is a time to make others happy

  33. PriscillA Stubbs says

  34. Kelly Wells says

    The lights-Christmas trees, fairy lights, decorations around the shops and outside. It always feels magical, no matter how old you get.

So i love that no matter what is going on our christmas is always the same old family get together, its nothing flash or fancy just family. love it. xx

  45. Katy says

    For me,its not about the gifts, its about enjoying time with those people at matter the most to you whilst enjoying the little luxuries you might not get to have the rest of the year.

  46. says

    For me the best thing about Christmas is the ability to put some magic into peoples lives. All year round I make notes of family and friends’ comments “Oh I’ve always wanted one of those…” “I’ve been searching for one of those for years”… etc etc
    I find those things and give them what they have always wanted!
    This year will be VERY different for my son and I and I am determined to carry on regardless and still put that magical sparkle into his day….X

    Its my sons birthday on christmas day so its a double celebration, its really busy and tiring but totally worth it to see his face when he comes downstairs to find present mountain, seriously you can see it from space!

  48. Hayley Wakenshaw says

    Instead of everyone spending loads of money on presents, the family each buy three gifts worth less than 10 pounds. And on Christmas day we play a vicious dice game to win them. I love thinking up cheap gifts, and the game is huge fun! Definitely my favourite thing about Christmas.

    My partner has his own business so gets very little time off through the year. I love xmas because it means we all get to spend time together without worrying about early mornings and the usual stresses of daily life. I also love giving at xmas, making people smile and sharing some happiness – it isn’t all about receiving gifts and being spoilt – it’s a great feeling spoiling others too. We often invite round friends we know who aren’t as fortunate as we are to enjoy some fun :)

  120. Lyn Geddes says

    I like all the pre Christmas stuff – the wrapping presents, receiving cards, putting the tree up with our cats trying to climb it, and all the cooking together as a family on Christmas Eve!

  121. Annabelle Taylor says

    Choosing our Christmas tree and then decorating it. It’s a tradition that it takes a very long time indeed to find just the right tree. Then it’s trimmed with decorations that we’ve gathered from all over the world. Finally it’s topped with our Christmas ‘Furry’ a tiny model of our Golden Retriever in a fairy outfit (trust me, it’s cute). Sadly she’s no longer with us, so I always shed a tear at that moment.

  122. vicky cockett says

    i love the night befre where everyone is so excited, i love making the magic come to life, and watching everyone be so happy.

  123. Amanda Richardson says

    My favourite thing about Christmas is the excitement all the way through December. I love the atmosphere and how everybody gets into the swing of things. I love to see childrens faces and how excited they are. Most of all I love decorating the Xmas tree – all that sparkle – love it. Thanks

    I love it when the children open their stocking from Santa. They sit on our bed and they’re shaking with excitement. Even though it’s stupidly early in the morning!!!

    I love the idea of a Christmas makeover but never actually do it, the nearest I get is moving all the furniture around to make space for the tree & gifts!!! ;-) Fingers crossed this could be the year I actually manage to do it!!!

    The best thing about christmas is always sharing it with children – my daughter is reindeer obsessed so the christmas season is always a month-long reindeer hunt!

    Just one thing? I love all of it!
    The scrummy food & hiding that expanding waistline under cosy jumpers.
    Shopping! & seeing my loved ones faces as they open their presents :)
    But my fav thing is probably family time.
    This is my first year in 4 years that I’ve got the day off work in 4 years!
    Plus my daughters very first Christmas.
    She is my rainbow baby. So Christmas & family time will be extra special this year :)

    I really enjoy decorating the tree. It usually takes me hours but I just find it so much fun and marks the start of Christmas for me.

  137. Gemma says

  138. Chris Wilson says

    Being woken up early is a joy on christmas morning,collecting a seamingly never ending pile of torn wrapping paper and trapesing out to the recycle bin is a delightful walk, Cooking Christmas Dinner for the family and inlaws is a delight…..Any other time it would be a CHORE. I love Christmas

    Spending it with family but especially my grandchildren because I get to experience every joyful moment of living my youth through them. Who wouldn’t want to experience what Christmas was as a kid again themselves? There is nothing better than seeing Christmas through the eyes of a child!
