    For me, Christmas is all the family sitting around the fire and tv on Christmas evening, when the first round of the turkey and ham have been devoured, and my brother is home from Dublin and my sister and her family with 2 small kiddies call out, soon to be joined by my uncles and nana. Barely room for everyone to sit down, but its bliss, and that’s Christmas for me 🙂

    For me Christmas is about spending time with family, food, wine, board games, seeing old friends and not working for 2 weeks! Looking forward to seeing what Santa brings for our little boy this year too…

    For me, Christmas is a new family adventure. We have the magic of Christmas back from our childhoods as we celebrate our 1st Christmas with our baby boy. It is a new joy that we haven’t felt since we waited to hear Santa’s sleigh bells ourselves. We’re counting down the sleeps

    For me, Christmas is spending time with loved ones and catching up with friends and family you may not have seen for awhile.

  5. For me, Christmas is all about spending time with family. We are all extra excited this year as our 6 month old baby boy will be adding to the excitement. What a magical time 🙂 he has turned us all into children again 🙂

  6. For me, Christmas is hiding from the kitchen until ten minutes before dinner and asking if anything needs doing, fighting with the brother and sister over who has to wash the pots and giving out that I missed ‘Home Alone’ again, for feck sake 🙂

  7. Exchanging gifts, eating great food, drinking fine wine. Wearing paper hats and playing silly games with family. Just being all together having fun.

  8. A time to rest after all the shopping and battling through huge crowds, to cuddle up with my family and pets with presents and treats 🙂

    For me, Christmas is a chance to give back to all the people I love in honor of the one who gave so much – my savior Jesus Christ.
