The first 9 entries in my Absolutely Beautiful Christmas Competition are in and I have posted them below. I am thrilled with the response to date but if the competition is to work we need your vote for your favourite one this week. I will take votes via email firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively leave your vote in the comments section of your favourite entry. Thank you everyone who has entered so far. I have thoroughly enjoyed hearing about Christmas in your home/town. Please continue to send in your entries!!
