Who would have thought that my Huffington Post blog about how much I hate Christmas would have got me so much media attention? It seems that my unfestive thoughts have hit quite a nerve.

I received calls from two local BBC Radio stations this week to appear on their shows and share why I don't like Christmas and how others can cope if they feel the same.

If you missed either show and want to listen again, you can access the files below. I apologise in advance for the glut of Christmas music in the second one!

Readers of Tesco Magazine should already have picked up on what I'll be doing instead this Christmas. In the November-December issue, they included an interview with me about my work at Crisis.

Yes, every holiday season I will be found helping out at a homeless centre in London. It's for a very good cause and I have a lot of fun doing it!

So if you really hate Christmas, why not join me next year and participate in a project that reflects the true meaning of Christmas. Giving, loving, sharing and gratitude.

And whatever you decide to do this Christmas, I hope you have a good one.
