"I was hung up on the countdown to Christmas Eve, my favourite day of the year.
Christmas died the moment I saw the presents under the tree. "
Daniel Ruiz Tizon's new festive podcast starts on Monday, 1st December. In 24 daily episodes Daniel explores what Christmas is, what it has been, and what he'd like it to be.
He looks back on his most memorable Christmases - the fateful trip to see Father Christmas at Morley's in '77, the experimental non-wrapped presents of '76, and his dad's refusal to celebrate Christmas from '81 onwards.
Can Daniel find something new in Christmas? Can he love Christmas again?
