In this issue of Saga Magazine : Can it really nearly be Christmas again? If you’re not feeling festive yet, the December issue of Saga Magazine is sure to get you in the mood. Our cover star, Tim Vine, has come up with some Christmas-cracker jokes guaranteed to make you grin as you groan. The season to be jolly is no laughing matter, however, for broadcaster, author and former Communard the Reverend Richard Coles, who admits he can tire of Hark the Herald when he’s heard it 30 times… His candour and contemplation regarding the changing face of religion, politics and family life in Britain gives us welcome pause for thought at this frenetic time of year.

Especially busy right now are three wise women whose businesses – all started in later life – revolve around Christmas puds, jewellery design and greetings cards. Find out how they did it and, who knows, you may resolve to launch a start-up of your own in 2017.

If you’re surrounded by friends and relatives on the big day, we’ve got the perfect after-dinner quiz, compiled by Eggheads supremo Judith Keppel, to prevent anyone dozing off.

All that, plus more than 50 gift ideas and our regular pages of terrific travel ideas, money advice from Paul Lewis and Annie Shaw, health problems diagnosed by Dr Mark Porter, relationship dilemmas considered by Jo Brand, £100 prize crosswords and a last laugh from funnyman Bill Bailey.

We wish you all a very merry Christmas!
