But for some people in the Portsmouth area, the 2021 festive period will be that extra bit more special.
That’s because they’ll be spending it with their newborn babies, as the little ones celebrate their very first Christmas.
We asked readers of The News to send in Christmassy photos of their babies so we can help them mark the occasion online and in print.
They responded in their droves and these 40 photos form the first of two special, festive galleries we’ll be publishing over Christmas 2021.
Is your baby featured? Keep an eye on the newspaper this Christmas period to see their picture in print.
NOTE: All photo galleries we publish contain a ‘Photo Sales’ button by default. However, no photos from this gallery have been sent to our Photo Sales team, meaning they are not available to buy.
