The Top 5 Things About Christmas

We asked Oliver Wright, Lily Godkin and Jake Austin to list their favourite Christmas books, films, music and food, as well as telling us the best and worst presents they ever received. 


Oliver Wright


1) Book: How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr Seuss. Dr Seuss is fun to read as it's written in rhyme for children so I understand it. Plus the film with Jim Carrey is great to watch at Christmas.

2) Film: Love Actually or Die Hard. Love Actually is one of the best films of all-time and has an amazing cast, and Die Hard is not a traditional Christmas film so makes it a bit more interesting to watch at Christmas. Also Bruce Willis is a cool guy. 

3) Music: Anything by Michael Buble or Christmas Lights by Coldplay. Can't have Christmas without a lot of Michael Buble, and Christmas Lights is a great Coldplay song. 

4) Food: Pigs in Blankets; they're incredible.


5) Best Gift: Any Lego I received before the age of about thirteen. Worst Gift: Shower stuff.


Lily Godkin

1) Book: Polar Express because it is open to interpretation regarding fantasy vs. reality

2) Film: The Grinch: it's so sweet and brings back childhood memories.

3) Song: Fairytale in New York by The Pogues because it always makes me feel really festive.

4) Food: Cranberry sauce. 

5) Best gift: A ticket to Reading Festival. Worst gift: nail varnish remover from my Grandma.


Jake Austin

1) Favourite Christmas book: The Night Before Christmas, an absolute family classic.

2) Favourite Christmas film: Gremlins, an absolute family classic - lots of tinsel.

3) Favourite Christmas song: 'Last Christmas' by George Michael - RIP - much missed

4) Favourite Christmas food/drink: Pigs in blankets + Swedish cider -  classic combination.
