Welcome to the first day of Lady Christmas. From today until December 24 I’ve transformed into Lady Christmas and I’m going to share with you the spirit of Christmas in Brisbane. I’ll be sharing what’s on as well as what there is to see, do, eat and shop as well as Christmas workshops, gift ideas, recipes and most importantly ways to give back to those in need.
