We all love embarking on super festive Christmas activities, even in the midst of November. Hay, it’s only a month until Christmas, not too early at all!!
Is there anything better than a christmas market offering warming food and small little nick nacks that would make the most perfect stocking fillers? Nope!
All the best cities have their very own christmas market, many being foreign in nature. Fill your boots with Nutella Crepes, German beer and wooden hand crafted ornaments your mum will cherish on her sideboard.
Your christmas heart will burst with festivity, and you’ll be sure to find a gift or two, if not for yourself!
– Light switch ons –
Ahh, the glitz of Christmas lights lining the streets cannot be compared. It’s even better when you are there to witness the grand switch on. Some c-list star will be sure to be there, along with the local radio station blasting Mariah Carey and The Pogues. Honestly, it is great fun, and once all is one and over, you will be ultimatley prepared to start the christmas shopping and festivities.
– Late night shopping –
I LOVE late night shopping, especially in the midst of Christmas shopping season. The dark nights, glittering lights and christmas tunes playing in every store. Late night shopping in your local town will surely put you in the spirit early, and get you shopping before the mad rush in December. Pays to be early!
There is nothing more Christmassy or wintry than a romantic skate with your other half. With the Christmas season kick started, temporary ice rinks have popped up across the country, so you will never have to travel too far to stumble across one. It’s a perfect evening activity under the starlight, plus its not something we get to do all that often.
You may even join in on a song or two!
