WIN: We'll send the ultimate Irish Christmas care package to your mate abroad

We’re making this December very special for five people who won’t make it home.

CHRISTMAS IS ALL about spending time with your closest friends and family. But we all know people living abroad who can’t make it home to Ireland this December.

So we want to create a very special occasion for someone you love who’s spending it elsewhere – whether they’re in Australia or Argentina, Dubai or Dubrovnik.

I genuinely miss the Irish banter around Christmas. Even with people in shops or on the bus. There is just such a lovely vibe. And having my friends close by. And the obvious: McCambridge’s, Kerrygold, real milk, normal crisps, chicken fillet rolls

We have five care packages worth €100 each – stuffed with all the essentials for an Irish Christmas – to give away. And we’ll send them anywhere in the world, with a personalised message from you.

How to enter? Simply email to nominate a friend, relative or any loved one and tell us why you think they deserve a Christmas care package!

We’ll choose five of the most deserving entries and give them an Irish Christmas to remember.

I miss the food and films. I’m a big fan of mince pies (which aren’t so available here) and reruns of films like Home Alone, It’s a Wonderful Life and Muppets Christmas Carol. The classics
- Megan, 27, living in Sweden

So get emailing! The closing date for entries is November 22.

Plus let us know the essentials that make a true Irish Christmas in the comments below – and who knows, we might even add them to the care package!

The small print: The closing date is Tuesday, November 22 2016. Each prize consists of a Christmas hamper worth €100, sent anywhere in the world at the discretion of An Post. The winners will be selected by the editorial team. We won’t use your email address to contact you unless you win. Winners who do not respond to communication within 24 hours may forfeit the prize. Full terms and conditions here.
