What is the "real " meaning of christmas to you? I know it means different thing to different people- but what does it mean to you?

For me it's a midwinter festival, all about feasting, being with people I love and lots of lights at the darkest part of the year.

Midwinter festival here too. I love seeing all the lights on houses when I'm driving home in the dark. What a long three months they would be without Christmas in the middle.

And I love creating excitement for DS with special family traditions. I think last year and this year will be his big years for believing in Father Christmas so I'm making the most of them.

And an excuse to make Mary Berry's Victorian Christmas cake and gorge on loads of it with a glass of Whiskey Mac or red wine. Or take a few slices out of it out on a long, frosty walk with a flask of tea. DH loves it so much I make two some years.
