To begin our Christmas stories, we caught up with Samuel and Nicola Maybury. Samuel is a young autistic man, currently in his final year at secondary school. In recent years, Samuel’s been getting crafty and creating his own Christmas lights, which you can admire below. His mother, Nicola, is an artist, who also sells handmade gifts, and a Christian colouring book.
We chatted to Samuel and Nicola about autism, how they’ll be celebrating Christmas this year, and the bright ideas behind Samuel’s Christmas lights.
