    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.

    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.

  211. 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.

I love pulling crackers, laughter, making someone smile with a gift, my sons face when he sees santas ‘ footprints’ on our carpet, making reindeer food, meeting Santa, school christmas fairs, empty expectant stockings on the end of a bed, precious time with my whole family, decorating the tree, lights being switched on, the yearly panto, giving sweets to the children in my class, receiving something made with love, cold turkey sandwiches.. The look of wonder on my child’s face :))

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 🙂

    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.

    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

    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!

  621. November 20, 2013 / 7:12 pm

    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 🙂
