For our last blog post in our 12 Days of Christmas series we talked to David, who has been with our production team almost two years now! We met up in our canteen during his lunch break and were keen to find out what he has planned for this festive season, chatted about his family and friends – the most important part of David’s Christmas.
I have met many kind people throughout my life who have helped me in various ways. I wish I was able to return their kindness. The best way I can do it is by offering my friendship, kindness and support in return. For my reverse Advent calendar, I wish I was able to have one lovely catch-up each day with one and all. If time nor money was an obstacle, I would love to help them towards having a more joyous Christmas.
Being able to give a gift that you know the receiver actually wants, but it doesn’t always have to mean spending money. Like giving my time, spending it together and a kind word shared. These are the kind of gifts that I appreciate receiving myself.
I really like all of the Christmas songs, particularly the cheerful ones. But I’ll most certainly make sure to include ‘Merry Christmas, Everybody’ by Slade – it’s such a happy and funny song!
"Are you waiting for the family to arrive?
Are you sure you've got the room to spare inside?
Does your Granny always tell you
That the old songs are the best?
Then she's up and rock 'n' rollin' with the rest!"
You're in for a treat. Today we meet Jane, the founder and curator of Blue Patch (also a talented illustrator) to discuss the mysterious treasures she would put into her metaphysical advent calendar.
From handmade gifts to ditching Amazon we love Karen’s brutal honesty in what an ethical Christmas could look like. It's not too late to make a change!
