How to make bootleg booze

Originally published by Junkee.com
There are certain things I associate with Christmas. My family come together, we decorate, we eat, we drink, we be merry. Presents are exchanged, and although I know it’s a special time of year, perhaps there are some things I take for granted. I wanted to find out what makes this time of year special, and I thought it would be interesting to get a snapshot of Christmas of people who have either given up their freedom, or had it taken away from them.
