Open thread: What's your one tip to make Christmas feel magical?

Tell us what makes Christmas for you. 

CHRISTMAS IS COMING ever nearer and you’re probably already thinking of how you’re going to celebrate it – and how to make it as special as possible.

Every family tends to have their own traditions formed over the years to make the festive season as magical as possible, and we want to know what they are. We asked some of our team at Journal Media what they do to make their Christmas as special as possible, and then it’s over to you.
