KA: I’d like to start off by just asking a little bit about Christmas and how you celebrated Christmas when you were younger?
GMcM: Right, well, Christmas time, like everybody else, we would have a big Christmas dinner with all the trimmings and such like. But, typically you didnae get as many presents then. Typical Christmas, sort of, I would get, everybody would get their stockin wi maybe an apple, an orange, a bar o chocolate. And you would get a book – quite often it was the Dandy of the Beano book. And you would get your main present which I can remember was a small train set on one occasion. And another time it was a garage wi lots o wee cars. That was the sort of typical Christmas present.
