Around the Christmas table

We've been out of the office to talk to people about their feelings at Christmas time. We've also been asking people to describe their ideal Christmas.

So there's a lot of talk in this programme about happiness, togetherness, as well as snow and food ...

From all of us at BBC Learning English, we wish you health and happiness.
