It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I know they’re the lyrics to a Christmas carol, but it seems appropriate to quote it. Now, more than ever, we realise the value of being together, of giving thanks and being in the moment. Carols is the perfect chance to celebrate that – whether you’re at the event or tucked up on the couch with your kids or loved ones.Kylie Gillies
This is exactly what we need right now. It’s been such a complicated and trying year for so many families. We’re thrilled to be part of this wonderful tradition, the sole purpose of which is to spread love and happiness.Larry Emdur
