From the editor:

Christmas is my absolute favourite time of the year. Barbeques, pavlova, presents, sunshine (hopefully!), Christmas music and spending time with loved ones are all part of what makes it so special.

We’ve got just the programming to make the end of the year even better, with Christmas specials from beloved shows including Hold the Sunset and Still Open All Hours, holiday cooking tips from your favourite Food Network chefs, and lots of festive content for the kids.

Keep an eye out also for Shark Week, returning to Discovery Channel.

On Sky Sport, the summer season is heating up with loads of cricket, including a longawaited Boxing Day test for the BLACKCAPS. Plus, catch Super Club netball in Nelson, team golf event the Presidents Cup, the New Zealand Rugby Awards and more

Head to the back pages of this issue to find summery recipes from Simon Gault, giveaways including an Amazon Alexa and a Fitbit, and a bumper crossword to enjoy when you get a quiet moment.

Merry Christmas and best wishes to all over the holidays!
