When Magazine Editorial and Advertising Are in Conflict: Depictions of Christmas in Women’S Magazines

How do you deliver a magical Christmas to one and all? In this paper we use a social semiotic and allegorical analysis of women’s magazines in both Australia and the UK over twenty-five years to consider their role in shaping consumer perceptions of the Christmas food rituals. In doing so we identify a multiplicity of challenges for the cook: practical, social and emotional.
