#YuleSlog: the Twitter conversation lifting the lid on the reality of Christmas

Christmas can be really great. But, let’s be honest, sometimes it can be pretty tough as well. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Twitter to launch #YuleSlog, a conversation that lifts the lid on the reality of the festive season. 

Whether it’s feeling pressure to have that Perfect Christmas, navigating that packed social calendar, feeling lonely, or just pretending to like the naf socks your auntie bought you – Christmas isn’t always the most wonderful time of the year. So we’ve been asking some familiar faces and CALM supporters to share some words of wisdom about getting through Christmas.

Vicky McClure, star of Line Of Duty and This Is England, got things going…

CALM ambassador and prolific Football Twitter maestro, Jonny Sharples, shared a powerful personal story about the loss of his brother, Simon.

Real Housewives of Cheshire star Dawn Ward stressed the importance of family and conversation in her #YuleSlog post.

Meanwhile author, journalist and CALM ambassador Poorna Bell shared a moving insight into her Christmas…

Join the #YuleSlog conversation over on Twitter. Remember, if Christmas is getting a bit too much, introduce our mate NOEL. He’s a smart festive fella.
