Definitely a feel good podcast

I listened to them December 2020 and I've just listened to them all again 20.1.2021.

An excellent podcast great stories that send you back to your childhood and give great ideas for the years to come. I'm struggling to let go of Christmas this year due to the cove and not being able to get back to normal. This podcast definitely puts a little spring in your step thanks Nigel.

Heartwarming

Such a beautiful podcast. It took me a while to listen to all episodes because Nigels hypnotic voice kept sending me to sleep! From his childhood memories to our Christmas traditions and their meanings, this really is the perfect podcast for anyone who loves Christmas. The book is just as wonderful, and one I read all year round.
