How about a game of Christmas Charades!

Charades is a classic game. There is no denying it. It is a game we all play growing up and is synonymous with big groups of people laughing their heads off.

Everybodies favourite? Christmas Pictionary!

So, if you were tuning in on Tuesday’s Breaky Show with Gift Giving Garvan, Lapland Laura and myself then you would have heard the topic for discussion; Board games or Card Games? It’s a very important question. It got me thinking, what games do I actually play on Christmas day with my family and I […]

You’ve got to have them…Edible Decorations!

What could possibly be better than spending an evening decorating the tree, sipping on some mulled wine, listening to….well, Christmas Fm. How about eating your Christmas decorations?

Do you want to build a snowman?

Every year we wish for a white Christmas, most years we do not receive. Even though if it did snow we would probably find someway of struggling to complete our daily lives or complain about it after two days; ‘I mean, it’s great until is turns to grey sludge!’ or ‘I slipped on the ice […]

14 Christmas Cards We’d Love To Send

At Christmas FM, we know how much thought goes into giving at this time of year. Getting the right gift or card for someone important requires far more than expense; to use the old cliché, it’s the thought that counts.
