Countdown to Christmas 2020

The countdown to Christmas has begun!


It is the spirit and imagination of kids that make this such a magical time of year for us all.

At Christmas, a carrot can become a snowman’s nose and a chimney is transformed into Santa’s grand entrance.

We adults will go to extraordinary lengths to keep the magic alive. And while Christmas might be a bit different for all of us this year, together we can make sure it's as magical as ever.

As the big day approaches, join us in celebrating the things that make Christmas so magical to families across the UK. And we'll share some inspiration to help make the holidays extra special along the way, too.

It is the spirit and imagination of kids that make this such a magical time of year.

At Christmas, a carrot can become a snowman's nose and a loo roll can become an angel to place proudly on top of your tree.

We adults will go to extraordinary lengths to keep that magic alive. And while this year may be a bit different, we can still help protect the magic for children everywhere.
