  • Before we get started, there’s one thing you have to know about Ang. Once a year she changes. Everyone around her, clients included, must be aware that this metamorphosis is taking place, right now.

    Just like John Key loves ponytails, Ang loves Christmas. And we’re not talking decorate the tree early, and buy some fancy ribbons. We’re talking dousing yourself in Eggnog and running through the streets yelling, "Santa is coming!!!” jingling all the way, due to all the bells festooned around your neck. Every year on December 1st she begins dressing the house and tree, whilst drinking Baileys, starting what Steve, her hubby, calls her “Xmas Freakfest”. Then there’s her pre-Xmas catch up with her “Westie Besties”, her west coast girlfriends at an Irish bar.

  • Before you know it she’s making gifts for the kids’ teachers (Picture a house full of Hershey’s kisses saying Merry Kiss-mas) - yes, Ang is our go-to crafty creature. She’s always making things more awesome with her “let’s make it more betterer!” catch cry.

    Then, once Dec 25th is drawing near you’ll find her watching 'Love Actually' with her sisters and repeating their favourite lines. And every day, from the 1st until the 24th, she puts Michael Buble on in the studio. So if you walk into Imagic and you hear his sweet crooning, you know Ang is in the house, decking the halls, fa-la-la-la-ing, and sporting a reindeer-esque red nose courtesy of the Irish bar.
