Christmas is nearly upon us and it’s a season with lots to look forward to. What does Christmas mean to you? Here we look at the best bits and the things that us Brits love the most about what’s called ‘the most wonderful time of the year’.
- Cold Weather
Now, you might feel torn over this one as the colder weather certainly brings it challenges, such as frosted up cars, the ever present cold virus doing the rounds and dark nights. However, if you love the winter, you’ll appreciate the beauty of an icy landscape, frozen cobwebs and satisfyingly crunchy grass underfoot. Wrapping up warm, hot chocolate in front of the fire and the hope for a White Christmas make this time of year feel that little bit more special. Snow makes everything look clean, crisp and totally different.
- Christmas Movies
There are some films that are an absolute must at this time of year, it’s a tradition. We love sitting down to The Snowman, Wallace and Gromit, Elf and Home Alone. There are undoubtedly countless others on your ultimate Christmas movie list. December is the perfect time to indulge in a few meals in front of the TV as a family so why not make it more fun by getting everyone their own Personalised Lap Trays.

Christmas is definitely a time for over indulging. Turkey, roast potatoes in goose fat, pigs in blankets and stuffing – the traditional Christmas Day lunch is a feast of belt-bursting proportions. Whether you follow it with classic Christmas pud or a mountain of profiteroles, it’s no wonder many of us feel the need for a post-dinner nap in front of the Queen’s Speech! Combine that with the various party foods, buffets and boxes of chocolates we’ve received – January is definitely a time to rejoin Slimming World!
You may groan when you hear the first songs on the radio and in shops sometime in November but it’s a tradition most of us love to hate. They have become such an integral part of the festive season that it really wouldn’t feel the same without them. Whether your favourite is Slade, the Pogues, Bing Crosby, Mariah Carey, Wham or some traditional carols – enjoy them, sing them and spread the joy because they won’t be here for long!
