There’s no doubt about it. Whilst the festive period is traditionally perceived as a relaxing family occasion with crisp blankets of snow, roaring fires and mulled wine, it is more often than not, a time where the average adult is whirring about in a mild panic.

“There the huge sirloin reek’d; hard by plum-porridge stood, and Christmas pie; Nor fail’d old Scotland to produce, At such high tide, her savoury goose.” – Sir Walter Scott
What makes the perfect Christmas?
It’s an impossible question to answer, as we all have our own individual idea of a great Christmas. Some of us fantasise about the classic sentiment of a family centred holiday; huddled round a crackling fireplace, nibbling on ginger bread and sipping hot chocolate. For others it’s unwrapping a mountain of presents; or watching your loved ones reaction when they finally set eyes on your long thought out gift. Many still celebrate the original meaning of Christmas by attending midnight carol singing at the local church; or using the season to spread good will and promote charity and giving.
