Editor’s Diary: The Magic Of Christmas


magic of christmas

In this Editor’s Diary a few weeks ago, I mentioned a top-secret project we had been working on. I promised to tell you more when I could. Well, that time has come!

This Thursday, we sent to press all 148 pages (yes, it’s huge!) of a brand-new publication. It’s called “The Magic Of Christmas”, and it’s a celebration of the true spirit of the festive season.

The team was inspired to put it together after the disappointment of Christmas 2020.

It was so difficult for us all to have the festivities curtailed, and to be kept apart from friends, family and loved ones. We made the best of it, of course, but it just wasn’t the same.

We’re hoping this year will be better for us all.

So we’ve packed our glossy new publication with all the Christmas good cheer in our hearts. We’ve filled its pages with treasured traditions, recipes, craft projects, puzzles, fiction and fond childhood memories of the most magical time of year.

It’s guaranteed to get you in the mood for a very happy Christmas!

The Magic Of Christmas” is priced £7.99 and goes on sale on September 15. It will be available from selected retailers, but the best way to ensure you get a copy is to order direct from us.

Buy your copy over on the DCThomson shop page.

Merry Christmas, everybody!


Season Two of our podcast series is coming soon – read all about our plans for it.
