What we love most about Christmas
MICHELE CRAWSHAW Editor - Christmas decorations made by our kids over the years. I love walking past the tree and seeing all of their wonderful handmade treasures. EMMA CLIFTON Deputy Editor - The movie Love Actually, eggnog, Michael Buble’s Christmas album, Neil Diamond’s Christmas album, Christmas Starbucks, Home Alone 2 and Mum’s Christmas cooking. BRONWYN MACKENZIE Art Director - On December 1, I love getting out the Christmas decorations and having a festive home for a month. I especially love my framed Christmas tree that is made up of jewellery from my mother, grandmother, nana, great aunts and even one piece from my greatgrandmother, who I was lucky enough to know. A beautifully kitsch piece of nostalgia. MARSHA SMITH Designer/Craft Editor - I simply love making gifts for others, but you can’t beat my overly excited kids who are awake with anticipation while I’m still frantically wrapping presents at 1am. Sheer bliss and exhaustion! ROWENA MARA Sub-Editor - Carols, decorations, community goodwill, the food and wine… and Boxing Day, when we can all breathe out and relax! FLEUR MEALING Editorial Assistant/Writer - I love spending time with the people I love at Christmas – especially my nieces. Christmas is so much more magical when there are children around! MEGAN BEDFORD Beauty Editor - As a Christmas nut, seeing my preschool-age son develop that same excitement and wonder for every element of the season.
