Christmas to me means catching up with your family and having a laugh. Last of all opening your presents.Yasmeen, 20, Liverpool
It’s too commercial. There are too many adverts trying to get everyone to spend their money.Ruby, 15, London
Bringing all your family together, having a laugh, giving presents and eating loads of delicious foods. YUM! YUM!James, 13, Crediton
The shops start selling Christmas cards in September! That’s three months before Christmas. Ridiculous!Tony, 18, Bakewell
I work for a charity that gives food to homeless people every Christmas. These people have no home or family so we try to make 25 December a happy day for them.Claire, 22, Derby
I think Xmas is as much about giving as it is about getting. I also think it’s a time for the whole family to get together and enjoy being with each other.Charlie, 15, Canterbury
I think that Christmas is a religious time, not just for Christians but for Jews and Muslims too. I celebrate the season the Christian way.Alisha, 16, Manchester
