Cover Story: Christmas Edition 2014


It's The Big Issue Christmas Edition! Vendors from around the country have put together thoughts, reflections, Christmas memories and a few cheeky jokes to keep you smiling all the way through December. And this bumper edition has eight extra pages, all the more to wish you well with!

Also in this issue:

Jacob Harris celebrates Christmas his own way; Doug Wallen’s five-year-old son reviews the latest Xmas albums; Tim Williams celebrates a simple old dish; ‘Roving Eye’ follows the flock at the National Poultry Festival – where turkeys are feted not basted; and, if you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the festivities, you might want to get behind Greg Foyster’s call for a national day of inaction.

The star of this edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’ is Steve from Geelong. And we have ‘Streetsheet’ contributions from Cheryl in Melbourne; Glenn F and Phillip L in Sydney; and Ben in Brisbane. We also have a festive photo of vendor Les and his pet ‘reindeer’ Matilda in Hawthorn, Vic.
