A very merry Christmas from the techradar team

It's been a great year, thanks for reading

We're sure your chestnuts have pretty much done roasting on an open fire, and if Jack Frost isn't nipping at your nose right now we'll be picking fights with those folk dressed up like Inuits.

We've had an amazing 12 months on techradar - a brand-new home page, the launch of our shiny How To section and we revamped our cars and wearables coverage as well.

We loved VR and the beautiful Galaxy S6 Edge. We went to the Dark Side of technology to celebrate Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as well as rebranding the whole site as TechVadar.

We've welcomed the Apple Watch and the iPad Pro, we've got excited about Fallout 4 and GTA V, as well as the best Android games and the best iPhone apps.

But best of all, we've entertained more than 20 million of you every month - a staggering number of people and we want to thank every single one of you.

Merry Christmas.
