In this issue of Vegan Life : Season’s Greetings! It’s the most wonderful time of the year and an annual opportunity to celebrate with friends and family. Of course, being vegan at Christmas isn’t always straightforward and there can be many hurdles to negotiate. This issue, we’re discussing all the areas you might need to navigate with the non-vegans you might be spending time with.
Jessie Keogh talks openly about her decision to spend her first Christmas at home instead of with her family on p120 and how she is starting her own cruelty-free Christmas traditions. Jake Yapp is sympathetic towards those of us who won’t be surrounded by like-minded people this year — read his hilarious, but poignant, rant on p130.
Gift-giving is a lovely part of the festive season, but one that can cause stress or conflict. Instead of glumly receiving unwanted, animal tested or non-vegan toiletries,
show your loved ones Melanie James’ feature on p106, as she gives us the lowdown on shopping cruelty-free. Also, check out our gift guide on p48.
We’ve got all the recipes you need to whip up a brilliant and memorable festive dinner on p60, and if you have any sway in organising your Christmas do, check out our pick of the best vegan-friendly restaurants around on p96. And from bubbles to Baileys, Oliver Coningham has got all the drinks you need for a compassionate Christmas on p118.
Finally, we were so excited to win Best Vegan Magazine at this year’s Vegfest awards. Thanks for all your votes and for an amazing 2019. We have a lot of hard work to do, but also a lot to look forward to in the New Year.

Have a great month,

Phillipa Smith
