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, as well as lines of poetry, quotes and trivia and bundles of ideas to help you plan for your dream Christmas.
To make the most out of the watch and listen suggestions on the calendar, we might like to 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. These are just suggestions, of course, so watch and listen to anything you choose to capture the Christmas spirit.
