Yes, it's that time of year again, cynics may disagree, but I just love Christmas! Cities get all dressed up and the cold weather only enhances our willingness to stay warm and really close to one another.
In London, it's all about going out for drinks with friends in silly Christmas jumpers and having a good time. For me, it's above all a family tradition, when everyone comes together and celebrates love.
This celebration reached new heights with the cover star of the January 2019 issue of American Vogue.
After marrying Nick Jones, Priyanka Chopra wrote on her instagram: "One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other's faiths and cultures."
Without wanting to sound sentimental, this is an occasion to put yourself in other people's shoes and practice generosity wholeheartedly by offering your time, ability to listen and affection.
For those of us who can't resist buying Christmas gifts, the way forward is buying them online and have them delivered on our doorstep. During the festive season, avoid the crowds gathering on the high street at all costs. Go out ice skating instead and enjoy London's glamorous lifestyle!
