Christmas is for sharing 2015

Christmas is one of the most important times of year for slowing-down and indulging in time shared with friends and family. However you like to get into the spirit of sharing – a gift, a home-cooked meal or a kind gesture – here’s eight ideas to get started.

1. Watch ‘Mog’s Christmas Calamity’

In 2015 we told the story of Mog’s Christmas Calamity. Mog sets off a chain of unfortunate events which almost ruin Christmas for the Thomas family. Can she pull it back? Course she can, it’s Christmas! Watch our 2015 Christmas story to find out how.

2. Treat cat fans to one of these…

3. Serve up some party sharing plates

An informal Christmas bash calls for some good, honest and sharable grub. No faffing around with individual canapés and fussy vol-au-vents – these party-friendly dishes are all about guests getting stuck in and helping themselves.

7. Share a Christmas crafting session with the family

Get stuck into a bit of crafting with the family and adorn the house with your festive creations. It’s a really rewarding way to spend time with the kids and great fun to show-off the fruits of their labour.
