Have your say: Who ‘does’ Christmas in your house?

Who wraps the presents, writes the cards, buys and organises gifts, and helps Santa?

Who ‘does’ Christmas in your house? Who wraps the presents, writes the cards, buys and organises gifts for everyone from the in-laws to the teachers at the kid’s school? And speaking of kids, who in your house helps Santa get organised?
