1. What’s your favourite family tradition during this period of the year?
I have to say the last few years with our Christmas craziness its been near impossible to get home for Christmas though I did manage to this last year. It has to be my dad’s pancakes, he makes them every time we’re together as a family, but there seems something particularly special about having them together at Christmas.

2. The Xmas song that puts you in the mood for the holiday season?
Anything by Michael Buble – though it does become a little weary by mid-December at the Cocoa House with him on non-stop!

3. What does the Xmas period mean to your chocolate business?
Everything, it’s our busiest time of the year, though seeing our regular visitors who have joined us every Christmas Eve for the last 7 years is something very special being part of the Christmas traditions of other families.
