2020 has been a year like no other and we’re probably all going to need that little bit of extra help to feel Christmassy this year. Well, the good news is – our website is back.

In truth, the website has never actually gone anywhere. While we have not been able to commit to keeping the content flowing since 2017, all of the movie, food, gift and shopping content has remained online for everyone to enjoy.

However, given the year that we have all had to endure, we’ve taken the decision to go again for Christmas 2020. We’ve drawn up a content plan and started to reach out to companies, chefs and people in the movie industry to see if we can again build out some great content.

We’ve always tried to write original features that you won’t find anywhere else. The tabloid or click-bait approach of regurgitating everything that you read elsewhere is simply not the way we want to go. We may not have the resources of those big sites, but we have our standards when it comes to quality.

So, from next week, we will begin publishing once again. It will start a little slowly, but by November we hope to be up-to-speed and delivering some special content.

In the meantime, why not look back at some of the highlights from years gone by? From festive recipes by celebrity chefs to exlcusive interviews with people who worked on some of the GREATEST Christmas movies of all time.
