Christmas is my favourite time of year. I love the magic, the food, the two weeks off work (joy of working in education!) and the sheer fun I can have in the kitchen making food for everyone. If your thing is sweet treats like mine then you will love the mince pies and gingerbread and they are so easy even my daughter can make them! We even managed to make a gingerbread house this year! (It lasted about 5 minutes before we ate it!)
