I have to declare straight away, that if I had a magic wand, I would ensure that not a peep was heard about Christmas until the 1st December, or perhaps any later? Having said that, I’d need to sneak in making the Christmas cake, pudding and mincemeat before my deadline.

What Christmas Traditions Are You Looking Forward to This Year?
I follow recipes handed down by both my family and my husband’s. Although each year, I push the boundaries a little. The Christmas pudding might be made with a different local ale rather than the original barley wine. I might find a different technique for the Christmas cake. On the day itself, there has to be lashings of brandy butter of course. It’s also about making new traditions. More recently I have begun to make sloe gin as the berries are so wonderful locally.

Rather than single out one thing, I’d say the wonderful Christmas stockings that Father Christmas left for me each year!
