There are some univer­sal tra­di­tions that in­stantly evoke the Christ­mas spirit ev­ery year – dec­o­rat­ing a green Christ­mas tree in LED lights and kitsch dec­o­ra­tions, pre­par­ing mince pies and Christ­mas pud­ding (or buy­ing them!), manic present shop­ping be­fore the 25th and the smell of turkey roast­ing in the oven.

But be­sides these sta­ples, they don’t call Christ­mas ‘the most won­der­ful time of the year’ for noth­ing, and ev­ery fam­ily has their own tra­di­tions that make Christ­mas truly spe­cial for them. From Elsa on the shelf to foot­prints around the house, we spoke to four fam­i­lies and heard all about their sweet, funny and most of all, mem­o­rable tra­di­tions.
