Christmas Time with the GG's!

As we rapidly approach Christmas day and the chance to eat as much as we like, we thought we should take a few moments to ask our team at the Granary what it is they love about the festive season…..first up, our Wedding & Events Coordinator, Naomi!

What’s your favourite thing about Christmas?

I love the build up to Christmas; Christmas shopping, wrapping presents, putting the tree up, the cold weather, Christmas markets, Christmas lights everywhere! I also love giving gifts that I know the recipient will love, and watching them open it on Christmas day!  

Bury St. Edmunds Christmas Market

What’s the best/worst present you’ve ever received?

Hmm... best was probably my over the knee Stuart Weitzman boots, they get plenty of wear every winter! Not sure on worst present, I was once given a bright orange canvas bag.. can’t say I’ve used that much!

Do you have any traditions that you do every year?

My Dad and I always go and pick out the Christmas tree at the end of November, and Matt and I always make and decorate loads of gingerbread!



Roses or Quality streets?

Hmm… probably Roses!

Christmas eve – in or out?

In! Tucked up in my Christmas bedding with a hot chocolate and a Christmas movie J

Christmas jumpers – yes or no?


Favourite food to eat at Christmas?

Has to be the main Christmas dinner! Saying that we always have a buffet style dinner in the evening on Christmas day, with mini pizzas, petit pain rolls etc. which I always look forward to!

Christmas day – up early or prefer a lie in?

Up early - the ONLY day of the year I will happily wake up early!

What are you most looking forward to doing over the Christmas season this year?

We have family from Weymouth and London coming up for Christmas this year, so I am really looking forward to spending some time with them!

Your fave Christmas movie?

Miracle on 34th Street…  a classic!
