NiliPod - Christmas is Coming

Nia's Blogging and Vlogging Website

Imge of girls sitting with tinsel, Santa hats and mince piesEvery year we get very excited about Christmas, pretty much from January onwards. But when the month of December comes along, we are beside ourselves with excitement, especially when we start to open our advent calendars.

So for the podcast, it seems really sensible to include a section where we literally Countdown to Christmas, sharing fun, festive 'feel good' stories and lots more besides.

Picture of girls eating supermarket mince piesDon't forget you can email us if you have any seasonal stories to share. Did you manage to get hold of a Dan and Phil advent calendar? They were selling like hot cakes.

We've got festive movie reviews, classic jokes, mince pie tasting, scary Christmas stories and some great songs, including our very own 'Snowball Song'. So tune in, sit back, get your mince pies ready and switch on those fairy lights.
