Got A Difficult Person To Buy For? Jedward Have The Christmas Present For You!

Somehow it’s already November, and if you’re like me, you’ve left it late to organise your Christmas presents. It’s been a hard year, and even if you can get out to the shops to buy gifts, the general vibe of 2020 has been one of not feeling up to it, motivated, or having the energy to think of what to get.

Thankfully, Jedward have it all under control! The acknowledged saviours of 2020 with their life affirming tweets, positive music, and random good vibes DMs, have come up with not just one, but TWO fantastic ways to spread the Christmas joy this year, at two different price points, so you can choose how much you want to spend (or if you’re like me, you’ve bought both for yourself!).

Kajagoogoo Star Limahl Releases ‘One Wish For Christmas’

The Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square, Selfridge’s for shopping, cocktails in Mayfair, the chimes of Big Ben from a boat trip on the Thames, a West End show, a midnight spin on the London Eye, passing out in front of The Holiday after three bottles of Baileys…this is Christmas, Limahl-style. (OK, one of those may not be true.)

The Essential Advent Calendar: Merry Christmas! Jedward Inspire Us To ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ As We Go Into The New Year And Decade

We’ve had The Essential Advent Calendar for a few years now and usually when it comes to December 25 we summarise the songs we’ve featured over advent. This year is going to be different. It’s the end of the decade. When we go back to reality after the Christmas/New Year period, and work out how to remember how to write the date, it’s no longer going to be the 20-teens, we’ll have entered the 2020s. And ultimately, it’s up to us to decide whether it’s going to be a time of prosperity and positivity or not: will we have a Roaring 2020s, or will we just go along with whatever is given to us, accepting it as our lot in life, no matter how miserable it makes us feel?
