Christmas holds a special place in everyone’s heart. It is the one time of the year that families – hopefully! – put aside their differences and celebrate a sense of togetherness before the new year begins.
As a child, Christmas is a dazzling display of tinsel, fairy lights and fun presents from Santa, when writing your letter to Santa and actually getting exactly what you asked for was a thrill.
Who could forget that feeling of opening up a gift and realising it was the toy you really, really wanted – not necessarily something expensive, but something you’d set your heart on.
Even as an adult, there are certain gifts that we remember as meaning more than others – a gift from someone special or something you had desired but couldn’t afford.
If you could choose anything this Christmas, would you want to receive? Would it be something out in stores now, something you owned in the past but no longer have, or something less tangible, such as the company of a loved one or a special experience you’ve always dreamed of.
