Welcome to our special 2018 calendar – counting down from the day after Bonfire Night to Christmas Day. Each window will carry you towards Christmas with festive suggestions for viewing and listening, poetry, quotes and trivia to ponder and ideas to help plan for your dream Christmas.
To make the most out of the listen and watch sections of the calendar, we suggest you quickly click through a few pages at a time in advance each week to discover our recommendations and see if you have the relevant music, films or television programmes to hand. Hopefully, being such a good friend of Christmas, you’ll have plenty of festive songs and movies in your collection. Fill in the gaps by downloading from iTunes or your favoured equivalent, making purchases from Amazon, recording from satellite or cable channels or borrowing from family and friends. There’s also YouTube and streaming service justwatch.com.
Of course, we are only making suggestions so feel free to listen to and watch whatever you want on any given day of the calendar, as long as its gets you in the spirit of the season.
