We asked. You told us.

CHRISTMAS IS ALMOST here. The Advent calendar doors are open. And all thoughts are on the big day.

So we asked people on the street: what’s the one thing that makes Christmas special for you?

All this month, we’ve been asking how readers do Christmas, in all its different shapes and sizes.

We’ve asked you to vote on a number of extremely important festive issues – and yesterday we revealed what makes Christmas for the average reader.

Thanks for sharing the journey with us. You can take a look at all the votes here!

From our family to yours, happy holidays from Budweiser. This Bud’s for you.
