My mother, Barbara Cartland, was a great believer in Christmas.
To her it was a special time for giving and receiving and most important of all receiving God’s spiritual message.
And true love between a man and a woman that meant so much to her all her life.
Christmas to my mother was always the best time to renew vows and dedication to all her loved-ones..
As a boy my mother organised a full traditional Christmas with presents under the tree, turkey on the table and decorations everywhere.
No one was allowed to touch anything until Mum said so!
And her message if she was still with us today and could see the way the world is in such a terrible mess is ‘love, love and more love
