The countdown to Christmas has begun and to get us in the festive spirit we asked you to send us some Christmas cheer and give us our very own Ho Ho Ho Hotter moment. We loved all your festive rhymes and creative photos, here's our favourite Christmas Crackers, we especially loved Jan Aylett's poem!

If you'd like to send us some cheer this festive season email us at or leave us a message on our Facebook page,
Ho! Ho! Hotter!
Raise a cheer,
Christmas time is nearly here!

But with the season,
Comes the feat,
Of snowy days and cold - oh dear!

But with the range
Of Hotter boots,
You'll find you couldn't give two hoots!

'Cos snug and warm,
You'll always be,
Hotter are the best you see!

Here is a photo of the festive embroidery I have completed; the lady is carrying a wreath of candles and the word NOEL is embroidered above. It features 1,250 beads!

If you are looking for a Christmas gift,
No heavy shopping for you to lift,
Order all from the Hotter book,
Shoes or bags just have the look,
Everyone will give you thanks and walk along to fill their tanks,
With love and joy and Christmas cheer
And hope to do it all next year!

"Look at the Christmas cheer I got sent in a box from Hotter's this year!!!"

Hotter fan Laura sent us this oh so cute photo of her son Henry getting into the Christmas spirit!

'With Santa so busy'

If you need to contact Santa,
Omit the usual paltry banter!
Don't ask for jewels, furs, or booze!
Just request some party shoes,
Cushioned, heeled, or flat, attractive,
Walking boots if you are active!
Or plain and simple shoes with charm,
Fluffy, pretty slippers warm.
Ignore the blessed rain and fog,
Sit and browse the catalogue,
Snuggles, cosy, on your sofa,
Choosing boots, or heels, or loafers.
Accord some kindness to your feet,
As I have done - such comfort sweet!

With Santa busy in the sky,
Save his time and yours thereby!
