We all have one…

TURKEY, CHOCOLATE, DECORATIONS… For many of us, Christmas is about family traditions.

Different families have different ideas about what makes Christmas, Christmas. For some, it’s a glass of fizzy wine in the morning. For others, it’s a Christmas walk.

This year, we’re asking readers of What makes a real Christmas for you? We want you to tell us how YOU do Christmas.

So tell us: Which tradition just means Christmas for you in a nutshell? The one without which you’d be bereft?

Is it the turkey and trimmings…

… or even something (vaguely) healthy, like a walk?

Maybe it’s something else that just sums up the day and season for you? Either way, we want you to let us know.
