What makes Christmas extra special?

16 Dec

First Norwegian x-mas tree - Trafagar Sq.

Beth: “Christmas lights and getting the dogs annual Christmas Santa collar. And snow, lots of snow!”

Alyssa: “Probably remembering my mums style, always have your decorations coordinated. And they have to be silver.”

Michael: “Knowing that you are going to be surrounded by all your family and just that warm feeling you have. Last year I got a pair of helicopters that fight, this year I’m hoping for a cheap little R/C car (then set up some sweet jumps for it like I did when I was 6.)”

Fin: “Die Hard! And the MASSIVE Christmas dinner that lasts most of the day, then the subsequent feeling of being ridiculously full with drink and food and unable to move.”

Knobbly knees & thick socks


Tamika: “I am the Grinch up until I’m wrapping presents. I buy different wrapping paper and bows depending on who I’m giving to; my Aunt loves minimalistic plain brown packages and hand written cards whereas my mum would love a bit more ‘in yer face-ness’ with bows, colours and ribbons.”

Laura:A warm home, quality food, cuddles from loved ones (expensive presents, lots of money).”

Patrick: “Its all about spending time with friends and family, enjoying random nights out and for us up north some kind of visit to the German market in Manchester! Christmas becomes a bit weird when you get older the actual day doesn’t have as much excitement, its more the build up to it and you look forward to the laughs you may have.”


Dig in chaps

Kieran: “Wearing your best wintery outfits that showcase your festive style. Buying presents for family members brings a smile to everyone’s face – especially if you get the gift on point. The decorations, trees, family time and all round goodwill add to the magic of the holiday season.”

Seyi: “Family first! Nothing for me compares to just being in the company of your family over Christmas. Mix this with some good homemade food (traditional Caribbean as well as other Christmassy dishes) & drink with some dvd’s and I’m sorted.”

Amy: “The Christmas tree, my little sisters and going to church to see the nativity on Christmas eve!”

Megan: “Cute Christmas knitwear is a must! I’m also a fan of chunky socks too. Love getting a glass of champagne on and just sitting and chatting with the family. Also, The Pogues – Fairytale of New York is my favourite Christmas song ever!”

Martin: “Easily the Christmas music and films, and the cold crisp feeling on Christmas morning! Oh and how close the family is throughout the day!”

Hanging the Christmas puds out to mature


Alex: Drinks on Christmas eve, Jingle All The Way, cranberry sauce, Die Hard, stuffing, living room covered in wrapping paper, Christmas cake and cheese, TV Christmas specials, Kirsty Mccoll and The Pogues, giving presents, The Great Escape, getting presents, Home Alone, snow, gifts from friends, time with family, turkey and pigs in blankets.”

Merry Christmas everyone:

    This really essentially a lovely stuff. An doc something like this provides precisely how deep the concept is actually realized by publisher.
