Woman's Hour - Christmas traditions; Digital nun; Childless by circumstance
Your favourite Christmas traditions; In the kitchen with the digital nun; Coping with the festivities when you're childless by circumstance, not choice. Jane Garvey presents.
Call Woman's Hour on 03700 100 444 to share your favourite Christmas traditions. We want to hear about the little rituals and customs, however strange or unconventional, that make your Christmas so special.
Time for something a little more spiritual in our kitchen series as we meet Sister Catherine Wybourne, also known as the digital nun, who lives in a community of Benedictine nuns in Herefordshire.
And how to make the most of Christmas as a childless woman with Jody Day, who runs a support group for women who wanted children but have none. She has suggestions on coping with family assumptions and pressures, including how to enjoy being an aunt without turning into a childcare martyr and how to think about your own sadness at a time when you might be continually told 'it's all about the children'.
