    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.

    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.

  218. Lynn Fancy
    November 6, 2013 / 7:49 pm

    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

    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.
