Day 1 - Who needs a bit of Christmas cheer?

On the first day of our Christmas competition we encourage you to tag a friend that needed to be given a bit of festive spirit. We received some amazing entries, although we couldn’t believe that Laura Martin hadn’t got her tree up yet! Here’s to hoping it’s up and full of shiny decorations now.

Day 2 - What’s your favourite Christmas film?

Whether you’re sat in front of your smart TV, laptop, or even tablet - Christmas just isn’t the same without settling down after a busy year to watch a great film. We asked you to tell us what your favourite festive classic was, and when it came to the all round favourite it was a seriously tight call between Elf and Home Alone.

With a few other classics like Love Actually, Scrooged, Santa Claus and Die Hard thrown into the comments as well, we have to say you all have excellent taste in films. Although, it doesn’t really matter which one you watch - they’re pretty much all amazing.
