If you have not already set up your tree and not yet planned your Christmas dinner, it is about time you get cracking. With 25 December right around the corner it is that time once again to connect with family and friends and wish them a great festive season.

This time around, you can also make your wishes a tad more personal, especially for those you know from other countries across the world. Instead of the regular "Merry Christmas", opt to use a greeting in their native language.
