Liane Carroll, the night before Christmas, Bishop Rachel

Award-winning jazz singer Liane Carroll performs live. At home for Christmas, but whose home and what does that mean? And we hear of Christmas past from the Woman's Hour archive.

Jenni Murray is joined by award-winning jazz singer Liane Carroll who performs live in the studio. Where will you be spending the night before Christmas? Will it be your own home, a childhood home or someone else's home? We discuss what being home for Christmas means. From the Woman's Hour archive, the first women ordained in the Anglican Church talk about celebrating their first Christmas in 1994. Also, we also catch up with the Rt Revd Rachel Treweek to hear about her first Christmas as the Bishop of Gloucester. And Christmas past on Woman's Hour, we ask how things have changed.
