Welcome to our special 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, you 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 already have plenty of festive songs, movies and TV specials in your collection. Fill in the gaps by downloading, streaming, purchasing, recording or borrowing. Don’t feel you have to follow our suggestions to the letter, either. Get into the festive spirit whichever way you choose.
