An updated round-up of Christmas posts 2022


It has been a few years since I did one of these posts, and I managed to post quite a few Christmassy things since then. 

There’s plenty to visit, or revisit, so I hope this makes up for me not adding any Christmas content this year other than the gift-guide!
